PALO PINTO (January 30, 2014) Cecil Ray Huddleston was held Thursday in the Palo Pinto County Jail without bond charged with delivering a controlled substance causing death or serious injury in connection with the death of his wife whose body was found in a freezer.
He also held on a parole violation warrant.
Shannon Herrin Huddleston, 38, died of methamphetamine use and hypothermia, according to a Dallas County Medical Examiner’s report.
She grabbed a coat before crawling into the chest-type freezer in the garage of her Mineral Wells home on Aug. 8.
Huddleston's teenage son opened the freezer a few hours later looking for food and found his mother's body.
