Trial for woman accused of dumping dead mother's body rescheduled

(PORT HURON TOWNSHIP) -- The trial for a Salem, Oregon woman accused of dumping her mother's dead body next to a dumpster in Port Huron Township has been rescheduled. 49-year old Kelly Rhodes has been charged with removing a dead body without a medical examiner's permission, which is a 1-year misdemeanor. Authorities say Rhodes left the body of her 89-year old mother, Mary Gertrude Grenia, behind Goodwill Industries in Port Huron. The body was found on March 12. A citizen tip lead detectives to Rhodes, who was staying with relatives in Belleville, Illinois at the time of her arrest. She was brought to Michigan and lodged in the St. Clair County jail on a $10,000 cash bond. The trial was set to begin this week, but was adjourned until Wednesday, June 19 at 9 a.m. as officials await results from an autopsy.
