WINAMAC, Ind. (AP) - Authorities in Pulaski County have arrested and charged a chief deputy coroner on preliminary charges of theft and official misconduct.

Forty-one-year-old Tracy L. Rossman was taken into custody on Thursday afternoon and booked into the Pulaski County Justice Center. The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office didn’t offer further details about the charges.

She was fired as a result of the arrest.

Coroner Steve Vanderaa has appointed Carrie Harvey as the new chief deputy coroner.

It was immediately unclear if Rossman has an attorney. A listed phone number for her could not be immediately located on Friday.
