Wisconsin woman who lost 3 kids in fire accused of ID theft

A woman whose husband was convicted of starting a fire that killed three of their children and badly burned her is accused of identity theft while was she was recovering.

Sharon Wand, 28, was charged earlier this month with six felony counts of identity theft and one count of misdemeanor theft in Iowa County, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.

Wand sustained third-degree burns over much of her body during Argyle fire in September 2012. Killed were 7-year-old Allen Wand, 5-year-old, Jeffery Wand and 3-year-old Joseph Wand. Her 2-year-old daughter, Jessica, survived. Her husband, Armin Wand III, and his brother, Jeremy Wand, were eventually convicted.

Wand was pregnant at the time and lost the fetus.

According to the criminal complaint, while recovering at a Dodgeville nursing home the 28-year-old allegedly ordered flowers for herself for Mother's Day from two different florists using names of at least five different people. The florists later learned that the addresses were incorrect.

Two of the orders included two bouquets and totaled $47.20 each, a third order for three bouquets totaled $82.52, and a fourth order for three bouquets totaled $88.31.

Police interviewed Wand with her guardian present at her room May 20, and Wand said she was shocked when she received all the flowers.

Wand said three of the people whose names were used to charge for the flowers were her cousins and she didn't know the other two names.

In May, Wand was charged with three counts of misdemeanor theft after police said she stole jewelry, a ceramic figurine and other items at the same facility.

A status conference is set for Nov. 12 for all the charges.

A message left Sunday for Wand's attorney was not immediately returned.
