Sharon Wand, whose ex-husband and brother-in-law were sentenced to life in prison for the deaths of her three sons and unborn daughter in a 2012 house fire, now faces felony charges.

Wand, 28, faces six felony charges of misappropriating ID information to obtain money and a misdemeanor count of theft of up to $2,500.

Wand made her initial appearance in Iowa County Circuit Court in Dodgeville Oct. 8. A status conference on the charges is set for Nov. 12 at 11 a.m.

Wand is listed in court files as living at the Lyghthouse outside Platteville.

Wand is accused of ordering flowers for herself at Bloomfield Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center near Dodgeville using the names of at least five different people, including three cousins, with fictitious addresses in Monroe and Argyle. The orders totaled $265.23, according to published reports.

Wand also faces three additional counts of misdemeanor theft of up to $2,500 and two counts of criminal trespass to a dwelling in two separate Iowa County cases.

Wand is accused of stealing items — jewelry, a ceramic figurine and a stuffed animal — from the rooms of Bloomfield residents around April 4 and May 10, according to court records.

A status conference on those charges is also scheduled for Nov. 12.

Wand’s ex-husband, Armin, is serving life in prison with no parole, on first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide and arson charges in connection with the deaths of their children, Allen, 7, Jeffery, 5, and Joseph, 3, and their unborn daughter, in a house fire in Argyle Sept. 7, 2012. Wand’s former brother-in-law, Jeremy, is serving life in prison with eligibility for parole in 34 years.
