Isabella Co. man accused of keeping dead wife in freezer sentenced to up to 8 years in prison
MOUNT PLEASANT (AP) — A judge on Tuesday sentenced a Michigan man who kept his dead wife’s body in a freezer for months to prison. Isabella County Circuit Judge Mark Duthie sentenced Terrell York to two to eight years in prison, exceeding advisory guidelines that ranged from zero to 12 months, MLive.com reported. Duthie told York in court that the facts of his case were “horrible,” and that family and friends deserve closure when a person dies. “A person’s body after death should be treated with dignity,” Dutchie said. “It should be treated with respect. It shouldn’t be stuffed in a freezer like a piece of meat. Your conduct is outrageous.” York declined the chance to speak during the sentencing.
