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.
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.
