Accused: Shaynna Sims allegedly removed the woman's breasts and toe

A US woman has been charged with removing body parts from the corpse of her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend.

Shaynna Sims was charged with illegal dissection earlier this month after police say she cut the woman's corpse during a viewing at a funeral home.

Authorities in Tulsa, Oklahoma, now say she also removed both breasts and a toe.

Prosecutors plan to argue that the 26-year-old's bond should be increased after she was charged yesterday with removal of a deceased person's body part.

Sims was arrested at the dead woman's home after she attended the viewing.

Police say she stole the woman's shoes and was carrying a knife with the woman's hair attached to it.

A police spokesperson said: "I was hoping by now this young lady would have talked and given her motivation behind why she did what she did, but apparently she’s keeping that to herself".
