DODGEVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - Sharon Wand -- who was badly burned in a house fire in Argyle -- is now charged with identify theft. 

Prosecutors said she was recovering at a nursing home in Dodgeville when she ordered Mother's Day flowers for herself from two florists, using the names of five other people -- including three cousins and two strangers. 

The 28-year-old Wand was severely burned 13 months ago, in a house fire set by her husband Armin that killed three of their boys and an unborn daughter. He's currently serving three life prison terms plus 105 years. 

Sharon's new charges include 7 felony counts of identify theft, and one misdemeanor theft count. 

In May, Sharon Wand was charged with 3 misdemeanor theft counts after authorities said she stole jewelry, a ceramic figurine, and other items from people at the same Dodgeville nursing home. The florists apparently knew that something was amiss when the names of the purported buyers had incorrect addresses. 

Police said they interviewed Wand in late May, and she claimed to be shocked to receive all the flowers in her room.  

A status conference is set for November 12th, in which all of her charges will be discussed.
