She must have really dug the guy A woman accused of digging up her ex-boyfriend’s grave and stealing his ashes pleaded not guilty to felony vandalism. Martha LaFollete, 48, lived with Roger Barber for five years until his death last November, said Athens County, Ohio, sheriff’s Lieutenant Darrell Cogar. Police speculate she may have stolen Barber’s ashes because she was not invited to his funeral. “I have a category of crimes that I like to refer to as ‘aggravated stupid,’ ” Warren said. “ I have been doing this for almost 30 years now and I have never had anyone steal someone’s ashes.” Barber’s teenage daughter, Sierra Barber, plans to rebury her father’s remains at the family plot. “I have to bury my dad and go through it all over again,” she said. “My dad’s in an evidence locker. They say ‘rest in peace’ for a reason.” � Associated Press Potty Mouth A woman accused of cursing at her overflowing toilet within earshot of a neighbor has pleaded not guilty to a disorderly conduct charge. Dawn Herb of Scranton, Pa., could face up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $300. The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania has taken her case. Herb admitted letting more than a few choice words fly near an open bathroom window. Her next-door neighbor, a city police officer who was off-duty at the time, asked her to keep it down, police said. When she continued, he called police. The ACLU “gets about one of these cases per year that’s almost exactly like this,” ACLU attorney Valerie Burch told the Scranton Times-Tribune. “If the officers had any understanding of constitutional law, they’d know that to cite someone for using obscene language in their home is unconstitutional.” � Associated Press
