OXFORD, CT (AP) - Police say a Connecticut man is charged with stealing a funeral urn containing the ashes of his girlfriend’s grandmother.

Connecticut State Police say 37-year-old Mark Kzakrzeski of Southbury was carrying a pistol when he stole the urn during a fight Friday at the woman’s home in Oxford.

Oxford Resident State Trooper Joe Duva said Kzakrzeski told them he threw the ashes and urn in the woods, and that it hadn’t been found as of Monday.

Kzakrzeski was charged with larceny, illegal possession of a firearm and disorderly conduct. He was being held Monday on $50,000 bond and was scheduled to appear Tuesday in Derby Superior Court.

It could not immediately be determined Monday if he had an attorney.
