A Kentucky woman has been arrested after her boyfriend's body was found inside a freezer in their living room, authorities said.
Teresa Owens, 51, was arrested following the grisly discovery at her Pulaski County home on Tuesday night as deputies executed a search warrant. They went to the home in the rural community of Nancy after Owens' 68-year-old boyfriend, Gary Ray Jenks, was reported missing by his daughter.
According to Owens' arrest report, Jenks' arms were tied with pieces of string, and his body had been covered with lye and fertilizer, in an attempt to dispose of it.
The Pulaski County Coroner positively identified the frozen body as Jenks', but a cause of death has not yet been determined. The coroner reportedly said the victim likely died at the start of September.
Owens is charged with tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse. She is in custody at the Pulaski County Detention Center on a $75,000 bond. Records show she is due in court on October 12.
She turned down an interview with her local station, WLEX, and has no lawyer listed.
