SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va. — An Alabama woman extradited from West Virginia after being charged with concealing the remains of two women while she cashed their Social Security checks is hospitalized with life-threatening conditions.

An Alabama judge released Wanda Kiser, 62, this week, allowing her to be placed in a Birmingham, Ala., hospital on a breathing machine. Her attorney, Richard Jaffe, predicted she may never be well enough to leave the hospital.

Wanda Faye Kiser, 62, was arrested in West Virginia in August and charged with concealing human remains.

Kiser, who once lived in Nicholas County, allegedly cashed the Social Security checks of Mary Cobb, 105, and her daughter, Wynona Delvecchio, 84, both of Jasper, Ala. The women have not been seen since 2002.

Human remains, believed to be those of the two women, were found in a Summersville storage unit back in August.

While Kiser has been charged with 17 counts of forgery and with concealing the remains of the women believed to be the Cobb and Delvecchio, no one has been charged in their deaths.

Kiser was extradited to Alabama in October. She is currently being treated for pneumonia, diabetes and congestive heart failure, according to media reports.

    A couple months ago she wasn't too sick to pick up the checks and cash them. This is a ploy to get out of jail. She continues to game the system. Looks like she has been collecting food stamps for about 20 people also.

    They ought to put her on a treadmill and dangle a cupcake in front of her.
