FARMINGTON, Mo. – A Missouri man has been sentenced to probation for hiding his mother’s corpse in a makeshift coffin and wooden vault in an outbuilding after she died of what appears to be natural causes.

The Daily Journal reports that 52-year-old Nicholas McClure, of Farmington, also was ordered to complete 40 hours of community service after pleading guilty to abandonment of a corpse. Court documents don’t explain why he hid the 85-year-old woman’s death.
