A woman in Joplin, Missouri, has been arrested after her dead husband was found stored inside of a freezer.
Barbara Watters, 67, was arrested without incident by U.S. Marshals Thursday at a house in Joplin.
The arrest comes two days after police found the body of Paul Barton in a freezer in the bedroom of the couple’s home. The probable cause affidavit says a witness informed police that Barton died in December of 2018.
Watters has been charged with abandonment of a corpse.
