DODGEVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - Sharon Wand is due back in court June 25th, on charges that she stole items from patients at a nursing home, while she was recovering from a fire that her husband set.

The 27-year-old Wand is the estranged wife of Armin Wand, who’s in prison for the rest of his life for burning down the couple’s Argyle home and killing four of their children.

Authorities said Sharon Wand stole jewelry, electronics, and sentimental knick-knacks from residents of the Bloomfield Manor nursing home near Dodgeville. That’s where she was getting treatment from burns suffered as she ran away from her burning house last September.

She has since been transferred to a center near Platteville.

Three sons in the Wand home were killed, along with Sharon’s unborn child.

She was charged in two different complaints in May with a total of 3 counts of theft and two counts of criminal trespass. The status of her case will be reviewed at her next court hearing.

Earlier this week, Armin Wand’s brother Jeremy struck a plea deal that convicted him in the fire and the children’s deaths.
