SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) - A man expected to be a pallbearer at a woman’s funeral has been charged with burglarizing her granddaughter’s home during the service in western Ohio.

Clark County court records show 19-year-old Blake Elliott was charged this week after the granddaughter told deputies he broke into her home May 3 while she was attending the funeral. Court records don’t list an attorney for Elliott.

The Springfield News-Sun (https://bit.ly/1T9CBup ) reports the granddaughter told investigators Elliott was supposed to be a pallbearer, but never showed up at the funeral.

Authorities say the granddaughter came home from the funeral to find that TVs, video game systems and other electronics had been taken.

Deputies say they found some of the missing property in Elliott’s apartment.
