EAST BROOKFIELD (CBS/AP) — Police say a woman skipped her own mother’s funeral so she could break into the dead woman’s house and steal a safe filled with items worth $90,000.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that 30-year-old Alyce Davenport was held on $15,000 bail after pleading not guilty Monday to seven charges. Diron Conyers, 27, was held without bail on a warrant.
