Woman charged with taking toy from child's grave

Police in northern Ohio say they've charged a woman who was seen on a surveillance video taking a stuffed animal from a child's grave.

Ontario police said 54-year-old Frieda Kay Shade turned herself in Wednesday after the cemetery surveillance video was widely viewed on the Internet and TV news.

Shade told authorities that she took a stuffed toy duck from the grave of 14-month-old Hayden "Tank" Cole Sheridan on Saturday because a dog was running loose in the area, and she didn't want it to destroy the toy.

Her attorney said she'll plead not guilty May 8 to one count of theft, a first-degree misdemeanor.

Shade is accused of taking the stuffed animal hours after the child's family left it for Easter. The child died in 2007.
