An Oklahoma man was arrested in Arizona this week after police pulled him over and found his dead wife in the passenger seat.
70-year-old Rodney Puckett, was stopped by an Eloy Police detective in the area of Toltec Road and the I-10. During the stop, the detective noticed that the wife appeared to be dead. After inquiring about the body, Puckett reportedly told the officer that his wife had died in a hotel room in Texas and he was continuing to their destination regardless.
Puckett has been booked into the Pinal County Jail on a charge of abandonment or concealment of a body, with additional charges possibly filed at a later date.
