A woman was arrested on charges of violating a corpse after allegedly digging up her late husband and throwing his coffin at the side of a road, police in Montenegro said.

According to the investigation by the Danilovgrad Police, 60-year-old Verica Zunjic drove 230 miles from Doboj in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where her husband, 60-year-old Milorad, was buried in his family plot.

She snuck into the cemetery and exhumed his body. She placed the coffin in her car and drove to the border.

After concerned motorists questioned her about the coffin, she took her husband out of it, threw it to the side of the road and drove off.

She carefully placed her husband’s body in the back seat of the car. When she arrived at the border, she told officers that her husband was taking a nap.

However, police were notified about the abandoned coffin and arrested the woman. During questioning, she denied any wrongdoing, saying that she was only taking what was rightfully hers.
