Kermit, W.Va. (AP) -- A Mingo County man faces a murder charge after his wife's body was found in a refrigerator.
Sheriff Lonnie Hanna said 39-year-old Roger Stroud was arrested Tuesday evening.
Stroud was being held Wednesday at the Southwestern Regional Jail in Holden. It couldn't be immediately determined whether he has a lawyer.
Stroud is charged in connection with the death of his wife, 29-year-old Michelle Stroud.
Michelle Stroud's aunt, Brenda Jude of Kermit, said a relative found Stroud's body in a refrigerator in a wooded area Tuesday afternoon.
Michelle Stroud was last seen Monday dropping her son off at school. Jude said family members reported her missing Tuesday morning and began searching for her.
