WOODBURY - ? Cops say the shoplifter who blew her chance to get a heart transplant is expected to get more time in prison. Convicted shoplifter Diane McCloud was freed from jail in January so she could receive a heart transplant. The Hempstead woman ran into trouble when prosecutors discovered she was smoking. McCloud was then arrested on an additional shoplifting charge.

McCloud is expected to receive another six months today on the new charge.
