Cecil Ray Huddleston
Cecil Ray Huddleston, 49, of Mineral Wells, was arrested Saturday by Mineral Wells police after an indictment from the Palo Pinto grand jury for delivery of a controlled substance, 1 gram or less, causing serious bodily injury or death.
District Attorney Michael Burns said it is a third degree offense punishable by a term of two to 10 years in prison and possible fine of up to $10,000.
The indictment is in relation to the death of Shannon Sherri Herrin, 39, of Mineral Wells, whose body was found in a freezer in the 1400 block of Southeast 19th Street last August.
"The autopsy showed she died of methamphetamine toxicity," Burns said.
The report of a body in the freezer was originally called to 9-1-1.
"An officer arrived and learned from the victim's son that he had come home and went to the freezer, in the garage, for something to eat when he made a startling discovery," noted Mineral Wells Police Chief Dean Sullivan in a press release.
