Milwaukee - A medical examiner in Wisconsin faces criminal charges for keeping part of a human spine so she could train one of her dogs to search for corpses.

Traci England, 44, was released on a $5 000 bond on Thursday. She faces charges of misconduct in public office and theft, the Oneida County Sheriff's office said in a statement.

England, who told investigators about her plan to train the dog using the body part from an autopsy she did on Tuesday, is due to appear in court on Jan 30.

She has been suspended from work and barred from possessing human remains.
