A Marietta funeral home has been fined and put on probation for mishandling two bodies.

Administrative Judge Kristin L. Miller recently placed Hanley-Shelton Funeral Home on probation for three years and levied a $1,000 fine.

The funeral home's owner, Henry Shelton, also was put on probation for three years and his license was suspended for 30 days. Assistant manager Edwin Sheltons funeral license was suspended for a week and he faces three years of probation.

In one case, the state Board of Funeral Services said the Sheltons kept an enbalmed body unrefrigerated for more than five months before releasing it for burial in July 2008.
