In a bizarre criminal case that captured attention across Oklahoma and beyond, a Tulsa woman was sentenced to 16 years in prison for corpse mutilation.
District Judge Kelly Greenough upheld a jury’s conviction of Shaynna Sims for unlawfully removing a body part from a deceased person, unauthorized dissection, first-degree burglary and concealing stolen property, according to Tulsa World.
Assistant District Attorney Reagan Reininger, “portrayed Sims as being a ‘scorned wife’ who was ‘so eaten up’ over claims [the victim] had a relationship with her now-estranged husband that she wanted to get back at her after she died,” Tulsa World reported.
Sims cut off the deceased breasts and a toe.
