A 37-year-old woman from St. Louis has been charged with disposing of a corpse after she detailed dumping the body on the side of a highway in her diary.

Joni Janis was booked into jail $40,000 bond on Tuesday.

Authorities told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Janis had a diary that outlined how she and two others took a dead woman from Janis’ residence to a vehicle, before abandoning her on the side of a highway.

The diary was discovered Monday after cops raided Janis’ home.

The victim, Kierstin Whitcher, 26, of Illinois, died back in February.

Janis’ diary revealed a male tenant of an apartment in her residence left behind the woman, claiming she was in a coma. However, the woman was actually dead.

Janis indicated in her diary that she decided to move the body.
