A woman was arrested after she attempted to steal her husband’s body from his grave.

The 60-year-old widow of Doboj, Bosnia, is facing jail after exhuming the body of her dead husband.

Verica Zunjic exhumed her husband’s body and then dumped his coffin at the side of a road in an attempt to smuggle his body from Danilovgrad, Montenegro, so he can be buried closer to her home.

It is believed that the widow had fallen out with the family of her late husband and wanted his resting place to be closer to home.

After sneaking into the cemetery where he was buried, she exhumed the body and placed the coffin in the back of her car.

However, when she faced difficulties in closing the trunk of the car due to the size of the coffin, she placed the body of her husband inside the vehicle.

A motorists became suspicious when Zunjic was seen pulling over and dumping the coffin at the side of the road and called police.

A police spokesman said that when officers pulled her over, Zunjic denied any wrongdoing. The woman attempted to explain that her husband was just taking a nap in the backseat of the car.

When she was confronted with surveillance video, the woman explained that she was taking what was rightfully hers.

However, “exhuming a corpse without permission is illegal, regardless of the reasons,” police said.
