CHICAGO (CBS) — A Deerfield woman who said God wanted her to marry the Rev. Michael Pfleger was ordered held without bail Tuesday on charges of stalking the activist Catholic priest.

Police say when 55-year-old Lidia Kuzniar of Deerfield showed up at St. Sabina Sunday services on the South Side, she was violating an order of protection Pfleger had taken out against her earlier this month.

Kuzniar had previously been arrested at St. Sabina’s on Nov. 8 on a trespassing charge.

Two days later, she was ordered by a court to stay away from Pfleger but showed up again the next day.

That time, a misdemeanor stalking charge was added.

Now after turning up again on Sunday, she’s charged with felony stalking.

It’s unclear why she seems obsessed with the activist priest.
