    Woman living with corpses can keep them if she builds crypt.

    WYALUSING, Pa. Ė A 91-year-old woman found living with the corpses of her husband and twin sister will be allowed to keep them if she installs a mausoleum or crypt, a prosecutor said Tuesday.
    Jean Stevens has indicated through her attorney that she plans to build an aboveground vault on her property to store the bodies of James Stevens and June Stevens, according to Bradford County District Attorney Daniel Barrett.
    "If she does that, the bodies will be released for that purpose," he said. "Otherwise they will be re-interred."
    Stevens' attorney, Leslie Wizelman, did not immediately return phone messages left at her office.
    Stevens previously told The Associated Press that she kept the embalmed remains of her loved ones because she wanted to be able to see them and talk to them. She also said she's claustrophobic and couldn't stand the thought of their bodies in caskets in the ground.
    State police have been investigating the bizarre case since the corpses were discovered in mid-June. Authorities found the body of James Stevens on a couch in the detached garage and the body of June Stevens on a couch in a spare room off the bedroom.
    Stevens had them dug up shortly after they died ó James in 1999 and June in October ó and tended to their remains at her rural property outside the northern Pennsylvania town of Wyalusing.
    Barrett said a decision on charges could be made as early as Friday, after he meets with investigators.
    He said authorities are looking into several possible violations, including misdemeanor abuse of a corpse. He also cited possible summary violations of the state health code, which regulates how bodies must be disinterred.
    "There were some things done here that were not lawful," he said.
    Police haven't said who retrieved the bodies.

    I wonder if this means a re-re-make of "Psycho" will be coming out pretty soon?

    Sometimes the movie studios go to great effort to find things like this to report, just so it will drum up interest in the movie subject

    I remember reading somewhere that her twin sister married her husband's brother. Hence the same surname. Not common but it does happen, and perfectly legal.
