FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - A Fresno County deputy coroner has been
charged with allegedly stealing from deceased people.

Prosecutors filed felony charges of embezzlement and grand theft
Friday against thirty-one-year-old Joseph Tiger of Selma.

Fresno County District Attorney Elizabeth Eagan says Tiger stole
personal property from the dead he attended to as a deputy coroner.
She didn't release any other details.

Tiger is due back in court March 9 to enter a plea. He faces
three years in prison if convicted.

Tiger could not be immediately reached for comment.
