WYALUSING, Pa. — Police have charged a neighbor with digging up the body of an elderly woman’s twin sister after police discovered two bodies in the woman’s rural northeastern Pennsylvania home last month.

Court records show that 62-year-old James Flanagan was charged Wednesday with abuse of a corpse — a misdemeanor — and issued a summons.

The bodies of James Stevens and June Stevens were discovered in the Wyalusing home of 91-year-old Jean Stevens last month.

Pennsylvania State Police say Mr. Flanagan dug up the body of June Stevens in October and helped move the corpse to the home of her sister. The body of Jean’s husband, James, was disinterred a decade earlier.

While police say they have identified those who dug up the husband’s body, charges won’t be filed because the statute of limitations has expired.
