  • An Oklahoma woman has been charged with desecration of a human corpse after her mother's body was found in a McIntosh County garage this week.
     
    Prosecutors filed charges Thursday against 52-year-old Shelly Maytubby. She was arrested after her mother, 79-year-old Erlene McCune, was found wrapped in a sheet in a garage.
     
    The Tulsa World reports authorities are awaiting autopsy results to determine McCune's cause of death. Police say McCune was living in an assisted living facility in Kansas two months ago when Maytubby checked her out and brought her to McIntosh County.
     
    Detective Jared West says Maytubby told him her mother died of natural causes and that she didn't want to take her to a funeral home.
     
    Maytubby remains jailed. Court records do not list an attorney for her.
