DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A southwest Ohio woman convicted of charges involving a dead woman’s stolen debit card has been indicted on new charges in the case.

A prosecutor says 30-year-old Tonisha Harris of Dayton was indicted Thursday in Montgomery County on charges of gross abuse of a corpse, tampering with evidence and failure to report a crime. She was convicted last year of receiving stolen property and theft charges involving 25-year-old Nichelle McKnight’s card.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Harris.

Authorities say Harris used McKnight’s card two days before McKnight and her 4-year-old son disappeared in March 2014. McKnight’s body was found. Her son remains missing and presumed dead.

Police believe McKnight and Harris were both involved with the suspect in McKnight’s slaying who killed himself in a shootout with police.
