Mary McLendon-Brown was indicted on two separate counts on Thursday.
Wadesboro Police Chief Thedis Spencer announced that McLendon-Brown was served with two true bill of indictments for one count of obtaining property by false pretense and one count of disturbing human remains.
In June, McLendon-Brown was sentenced to 6-17 months in prison for obtaining property by false pretenses after accepting money to take a body to the crematorium but failing to do so. Wadesboro police found the bodies of Marshall Ray Allen and Henry Thomas Garris untended in her former funeral home earlier this summer, leading to her initial conviction. In 2010, three other neglected bodies were discovered in the same funeral home.
Following her indictments on Thursday, McLendon-Brown was returned to prison. “She was given a written promise to appear and returned to the custody of the North Carolina Department of Corrections,” Spencer said in a release. Her court date is set for Sept. 29 in the Anson County Superior Court.
