SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) -- A prosecutor says a West Virginia woman will be charged with two counts of illegally disposing of a dead body after human remains were found in a Summersville storage unit.

Nicholas County Prosecutor P.K. Milam tells The Register-Herald that arrest warrants were issued soon after state police discovered the two bodies Wednesday.

He says when troopers went to arrest 61-year-old Wanda Kiser, she had taken some pills.  Milam said Saturday that Kiser is hospitalized and will be arrested when she is released.

Authorities had sought Kiser for questioning about an elderly mother and daughter missing from Alabama.

Last month, Alabama authorities charged Kiser with 17 counts of forgery for allegedly cashing checks belonging to 105-year-old Mary Cobb and 84-year-old Wynona Delvecchio of Jasper, who were reported missing in 2003.

SUMMERSVILLE (AP and WVVA) -- West Virginia State Police say they're working with Alabama authorities to investigate the discovery of two sets of human remains found in a storage locker in Nicholas County.

Sgt. Ron Lilly said State Police have a person of interest, but that person has not been charged. He would not provide either a name or the person's gender Friday morning but said he may have more details later in the day.

NBC affiliate WVTM in Birmingham, Ala., reported Thursday that the discovery of the remains may be connected to a decade-old missing persons case in Walker County, Ala., in which two elderly women -- Mary Cobb and her daughter Wynona Delvecchio -- disappeared in 2002.

Lilly says the owner of the Stor-All rental storage facility outside Summerville contacted his detachment Wednesday afternoon when he found the door to one unit unsecured and looked inside.

He called troopers to determine whether a leg was animal or human.

Lilly says there was no doubt it was human.

The West Virginia Medical Examiner's office is working to identify the bodies and causes of death.
