TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A preliminary hearing has been rescheduled for an Oklahoma woman accused of slashing the corpse of her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend during a funeral home viewing.

Court records show a Tulsa judge postponed the hearing for Shaynna Sims until June 3.

Sims was arrested at the dead woman’s apartment after she attended the viewing April 30. Police said Sims stole the dead woman’s shoes and was carrying a knife with the woman’s hair attached to it.

Witnesses told officers they saw Sims reach into the casket during the viewing.

The dead woman’s face was found slashed from her hairline to the tip of her nose, her makeup smeared and her hair on the floor, police said. Additional mutilation of the woman’s body was discovered as it was being prepared for cremation.
