Sister of woman killed by mom gets probation for moving body


ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman who helped move her elder sister’s body after their mother killed her has received probation.

Twenty-one-year-old Hannah Tyburski pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor charge of gross abuse of a corpse for helping Janet Tyburski move 26-year-old Rachele Tyburski’s body from the family’s home in the Cleveland suburb of Lakewood to a field in Lorain County in March 2015.

Forty-seven-year-old Janet Tyburski was sentenced last week to a minimum of 19 years in prison after pleading guilty to murder, felonious assault, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse. She apologized in court and said she wasn’t in her right mind when she put the body in a field.

Hannah Tyburski’s attorney said Tuesday that the college student is trying to get her life back on track.
