East Stroudsburg — A Pennsylvania funeral director already facing charges of taking photos with corpses to gross out her friends and relatives is facing new charges of evidence tampering.

The Monroe County district attorney's office alleges Angeliegha (an-jah-LEE'-ah) Stewart deleted four images from her Google photos account during an ongoing investigation. Prosecutors say two of the photos were selfies with bodies in the background and two were of the faces of dead people.

Stewart previously was charged with abuse of a corpse and marijuana possession.

The Lanterman & Allen Funeral Home in East Stroudsburg has said it is "disappointed" by the allegations and is cooperating with authorities.
