(KSL News) A woman convicted of stealing her dead sister-in-law's identity has been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison, according to the Deseret Morning News.

Nicki Warner was first arrested last year after trying to pass checks from the account of Sharee Hatch, who was murdered by her husband -- Warner's brother.

Warner got out on bail but was jailed again on allegations of burglary and theft. Posting bail yet again, Warner was picked up for DUI.

The judge refused her attorney's request for jail time instead of prison time, saying Warner is a high risk to re-offend.
