DODGEVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- A woman burned in a house fire that killed three of her children has been charged with stealing from residents at a rehabilitation center where she is recovering.

Sharon Wand suffered third-degree burns over much of her body when her husband set fire to their house in Lafayette County last September. Armin Wand is in prison with no hope of parole. Armin's brother, Jeremy, has been convicted of helping him set the fire.

The State Journal reports Iowa County prosecutors say Sharon Wand stole jewelry, a ceramic figurine and a stuffed animal from residents at Bloomfield Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Facility near Dodgeville in April and May. Iowa County Sheriff Steve Michek says she has been moved to another rehab facility near Platteville.

Sharon Wand, the wife of an Argyle man convicted in a fatal fire that killed three children, faces theft charges.

The alleged thefts occurred at the Bloomfield Nursing and Rehabilitation home.

Criminal complaints alleged that Wand stole jewelry, toys and other items that belonged to other residents or the facility itself.

The facility's administrator told a deputy at one point that Wand was a difficult resident, and was known to steal property.

The administrator also claimed Wand would manipulate staff, residents and other visitors of the facility. The report claims she would tell people of her troubled past, and manipulate them to donate money, clothing and other items to her or give her presents.
