Woman sentenced in theft of items from dead man's RV

NEW PORT RICHEY — Shana Boyarsky made a handshake deal with a man she met at a yard sale. Kent Bove said he'd pay her 10 bucks an hour to help him move into a new place.

But after Boyarsky worked 23 hours helping Bove get into an RV in Holiday last November, she was unable reach him. Frustrated, she drove to his home, let herself in and found him dead.

Boyarsky called 911, authorities said, but only after cleaning out his RV of about $2,750 worth of his belongings: his computer, a black leather jacket, a box of CDs, a Nintendo GameCube. Also, a box that had two glass crack pipes inside, according to arrest reports.

Boyarsky, 41, of Palm Harbor, was charged with grand theft. Last week, she pleaded no contest to the charge and was sentenced to 18 months' probation.

Investigators said she was not suspected of foul play in Bove's death, which was ruled a suicide.
