A Floyd County woman was arrested last week for allegedly violating a grave.

Misty Morrow, 36, of Galveston, was arrested last week and charged with one count of violation of a grave, a Class D felony.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Timothy Hurtt alleges in an arrest citation that Morrow violated a grave by stealing sports memorabilia and lights from it.  She allegedly stole a University of Kentucky wind chime, a Pittsburgh wind chime, a shepherd’s hook, a blue lantern and four solar lights from a grave site on Branham’s Creek. 

He reported that the value of these items is estimated to be more than $200.

A deer camera recorded the alleged theft, Hurtt reported. 

A not guilty plea was entered on Morrow’s behalf during an arraignment in Floyd District Court last week. 

District Judge Jimmy Marcum set her bond at $5,000 surety and ordered her to stay off of the cemetery. She is scheduled to return to court Wednesday for a preliminary hearing. 

If convicted, Morrow could face been one and five years in jail.
