LANCASTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE- A woman who dug up her father's grave in search of his "real will" pleaded guilty after she told police she only found vodka and cigarettes.

A prosecutor compared the scene to an Edgar Allen Poe story after Melanie Nash and three others were accused of opening Eddie Nash's vault.

Police say she felt she got the short end in her share of the inheritance after her father died 10 years ago. She pleaded guilty to criminal mischief, interference with a cemetery, conspiracy and abuse of a corpse.

Two of her accomplices also pleaded guilty and one was acquitted in their search for a will that wasn't in the casket.
