A HOUSTON man has been charged with murder after police found the body of his much younger wife stuffed inside a freezer at his workplace.
Curtis Allen Holliday is accused of killing his 29-year-old wife Chi Thi Lien Le, who had been missing since April 3, according to investigators with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
Le’s loved ones became concerned after they were unable to get in contact with her for several days, investigators told KHOU.
Deputies combed through Holliday’s place of business and found the woman’s corpse in a commercial freezer.
Holliday was arrested on May 5 after being hit with charges of violation of bond on a protective order and continuous violence against a family member.
According to court documents obtained by KRTK, the 58-year-old business owner assaulted his wife on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day of last year and was charged with assault.
Le’s death has been ruled a homicide and Holliday was charged with murder on Tuesday.
He is being held in jail without bond, KRTK reported.
