Woman accused of killing two Alabama women, hiding their bodies in a West Virginia locker.
A West Virginia woman is facing charges after human remains were found in a storage unit in her name.
Authorities believe she may have been hiding the bodies of two Alabama women for more than a decade.
Leslie Rubin has more on the investigation.
Still recovering from a failed suicide attempt, 61-year-old Wanda Kiser is released from the hospital and taken into state police custody, facing charges of concealing human remains.
“Wanda, do you know how the bodies got in that locker?"
Last week owners of this storage facility in Summersville noticed suspicious drag marks leading into one of the unlocked units.
Inside, a gruesome discovery of what they believed were human remains.
"Immediately upon looking into the storage shelter, we knowed it was human remains, at that time we secured the scene."
Troopers say the unit leased to Kiser in 2008 contained a leg with a foot still attached, bearing a sock, a human skull in an open box, and what appeared to be human hair.
Also in the unit, a significant amount of paperwork with the names Mary Cobb and Wynona Delvecchio.
The 84 and and 105-year-old mother and daughter, have been missing from a Jasper Alabama nursing home for more than a decade.
Refusing to answer questions, Kiser also apparently kept quiet when Alabama authorities came to West Virginia last month to question her about the missing women.
She's their former neighbor, and the one who checked Delvecchio out of the nursing home, but it was a series of forgery indictments that brought them to the mountain state.
Kiser had been at the center of the Alabama investigation since they discovered she had set up a fictitious account that only she could access, allegedly forging checks belonging to the mother and daughter.
"Under advice of her counsel, she chose to fight extradition. At that time, her bond was also lowered, she was placed on home confinement and she was on home confinement when these new charges came about."
A strange series of events quickly starting to unravel and perhaps the start of closing a cold case hundreds of miles away.
