A burglar who targeted homes in Westchester County, New York while families attended the funeral is convicted Monday after being convicted last month.

Latonia Stewart, 30, was convicted of breaking and entering six homes while the victims attended their loved ones’ funerals.

After a week-long trial, the Bronx resident was convicted of second-degree burglary and criminal possession of fourth-degree stolen property, both offenses. Stewart faces a prison sentence of at least 3.5 years to a maximum of 15 years in state prison for any burglary charge.

Between December 2017 and May 2018, Stewart robbed the homes of six Westchester Counties in Cortlandt, Greenburgh, Ossining, Rye Brook, Scarsdale and Tarrytown who were not at home to attend a wake or spouse’s funeral. Stewart targeted houses after searching online obituaries. Jewelry, watches, silverware, and other valuables were stolen. Stewart used a hammer to break windows and glass doors to break into some houses and did further damage to the houses once inside.

Police arrested Stewart in May 2018 after seeing her leave a deceased person’s home with jewelry in the vehicle and the website with an obituary on her cell phone. After his arrest, police found other stolen items and tools from his car and his Bronx residence.
