TEXARKANA, AR (KSLA) - An Ark-La-Tex man will spend the next 15 years of his life behind bars for allegedly not letting authorities know his wife was deceased.
50-year-old David Walker of Magnolia, Arkansas was sentenced Monday by a Texarkana, Arkansas judged to 15 years on two charges.
Walker will serve 10 years on an abuse of a corpse charge and five years on a battery charge.
Authorities say a maintenance man found 33-year-old Jacey Walker dead inside her home at the Sterling Crest Apartment Complex, back in March 2009. Hours later, authorities arrested Walker on drug charges.
