SLIDELL, La., Jan. 30 (UPI) — A jury convicted a Slidell, La., woman accused of depositing her dead father’s body in an ice chest and stealing his Social Security checks.

Deborah Ann Fisher, 59, was convicted Tuesday of unlawful disposal of human remains, mutilating human remains and theft.

At the trial the six-member jury watched a video interview Fisher gave St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office Detective Randy Loumiet in March, when she and roommate Heidi Todd were arrested. Fisher told Loumiet she cut off the hands of her dead father, Charles Fisher, so no one could identify his body.

She also told Loumiet after her father died, she used his Social Security account for rent money, transferring remaining funds to her own checking account.

Todd, 45, pleaded guilty in December to similar charges and was sentenced to three years in prison, The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune reported Wednesday.

Fisher was to return to court March 22 for sentencing.
