Sleeping Burglar Charged

Burglary charges have been filed against a Cookeville woman who was found sleeping on the sofa in a home that she had allegedly broken into. Cookeville police say the homeowner had passed away and when relatives came to check on the property, they found a broken window. Police officers came to the home on East Hudgens Street and found 31-year-old Deonna Michelle Kroenert asleep on a couch. Kroenert reportedly told officers that the lady who lived in the home had let her in, but she was later charged with aggravated burglary. She'll be in court on October 12th.
