Graverobber took guitar from coffin

A cemetery worker could spend 10 years in jail after pleading guilty to stealing an electric guitar from a casket.

The cream-coloured Fender Telecaster was laid upon the body of Wisconsin guitarist Randall Jourdan.

Steven Conard (40), who worked at the Allouez Catholic Cemetery near Green Bay, allegedly told a fellow worker: "I have to have it. It's too expensive for a crypt." He will be sentenced in January.
