A Pennsylvania funeral director has been charged with abusing corpses for allegedly taking cellphone pictures of the dead to "gross out" her friends and family.

Twenty-seven-year-old Angeliegha Stewart also faces a marijuana charge, after Monroe County detectives found conversations about deals when they searched her phone last month amid their investigation into the photos.

Authorities say Stewart took pictures of one corpse during an organ-harvesting process and others of a decomposing corpse. Some of the corpses were in caskets; some were not.

During an interview with county detectives, Stewart admitted to taking photos of corpses as a joke and also admitted to selling marijuana, according to a criminal complaint obtained by NBC10.

Authorities on Monday were still identifying the corpses.

Records show Stewart applied for a public defender, but that office said Monday it doesn't represent her.
