Man Sentenced for Keeping Wife’s Body In Freezer

An Isabella County man who admitted to concealing his wife’s body in a freezer will spend up to eight years behind bars.

Terrell York was arrested in April after family members of his wife, Patricia, reported that they hadn’t heard form her in two years. Investigators found the woman’s body in a freezer at the couple’s home in Deerfield Township. Authorities say she had died of natural causes.

York pleaded guilty guilty to concealing the death of an individual in October, and on Tuesday, was sentenced by Isabella County Circuit Court Judge Mark Duthie. He was given credit for 7.5 months already served.
