Shannon Herrin was found dead in a deep freezer in 2013–Yesterday, a Palo Pinto County jury determined that her husband was not responsible for her death, but was found guilty on drug charges.
50-year-old Cecil Ray Huddleston of Mineral Wells was found guilty of delivery of less than 1 gram of methamphetamine to his wife, Shannon Herrin.
The Mineral Wells Index says Herrin was found dead Aug. 8, 2013, inside a deep freezer in the garage of her Mineral Wells home by her 22-year-old son, Jordan Glover.
Officials said Herrin’s death was caused by the toxic effects of methamphetamine with hypothermia as a contributing factor. Additionally, toxicology reports also indicated other substances found in the body included marijuana, hydrocodone and a prescription anti-anxiety medication.
From the investigation it appeared Huddleston had been the person who delivered the methamphetamine to Herrin.
The investigation also appeared to show Herrin had climbed into the freezer on her own.
The jury meets again today for the punishmen phase of Huddleston’s trial.
