State authorities seek help identifying 2 bodies

SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va. -- West Virginia officials have called in experts from Washington, D.C., as they try to identify two sets of human remains found in a Nicholas County storage unit.

Prosecutors tell The Register-Herald that no positive identification has been made on the bodies or a skull. The skull was found in the home of 61-year-old Wanda Kiser.

Prosecutors say Kiser will be charged with illegally disposing of a body once she's released from a hospital.

Arrest warrants were issued after the bodies were discovered last Wednesday.

Kiser faces 10 forgery counts in Alabama for allegedly cashing retirement checks belonging to 105-year-old Mary Cobb and 84-year-old Wynona Delvecchio of Jasper, Ala.

Alabama authorities say Kiser checked both women out of a nursing home there in 2000. They were reported missing in 2003.
