McHenry County police officials say a northwest suburban couple arrested on burglary charges found their victims in the local obituary.

Jason Werner and Jacquelyn Buchholz would read local obituaries, according to police, and then break into people's houses when they went to their families' funerals or wakes.

The two have confessed to several burglaries in McHenry County.

Police say that they could face even more charges.
