OHIO MAN AND HIS LOVER MOVE INTO DEAD GIRLFRIEND’S FLAT AFTER STORING HER DEAD BODY IN FREEZER

A man stored his former girlfriend’s dead body in a freezer, setting up home in her flat with another woman who assumed her identity, a prosecutor in Ohio has said.

Katrina Layton and Arturo Novoa allegedly moved into the home of Shannon Graves, who had been missing since Christmas.
Layton allegedly used her credit cards and cared for her dog at the flat.

The couple was arrested and remanded in custody on “corpse abuse charges” after the Shannon’s body was found in her flat in Campbell, near Youngstown, Ohio.

They were given a bond set at $1m (£756,000).

Ms Graves, who was 28, was last seen on Christmas Day in 2016, according to the Ohio Attorney General Missing Persons records.

Police say Novoa asked a friend to keep the padlocked freezer in his basement.

However, after becoming suspicious, the friend broke open the freezer and allegedly discovered the body.

The cause of death is yet to be established.
