Wife Who Allegedly Murdered And Dismembered Husband Lived With Decomposing Remains For 6 Months

A woman is now facing murder charges after allegedly killing her husband, dismembering his body and living with the remains for over five months.

Marcia Eubank, 49, was arrested Saturday for allegedly shooting her 54-year-old husband Howard Eubank in the back and covered up the murder by lying to his employer and to their family. Meanwhile, she hid his body parts in the house, which she continued to inhabit as his remains deteriorated. Authorities have since tentatively confirmed the body parts found in the home belong to Howard Eubank.

“Due to the decomposition and condition of the body, this process will take additional time,” Gary Guenther, chief investigator for the Medical Examiner’s Office, told New York Post.

Howard Eubank was allegedly killed in June, but it wasn’t until December that the couple’s son called the police after discovering maggots and a foul smell inside the family home.

Marcia Eubank is now being

Laci and Scott Peterson seemed like a picture-perfect couple. In 2003, the Modesto, California couple became household names when the pregnant 27-year-old disappeared. Her body was found washed up on the beach. Scott became a suspect and was eventually convicted of first-and second-degree murders of his wife and unborn son.
