So one of those weird crime stories popped up this week — the case of a long-dead corpse (perhaps remains are more precise) found in the home of a Paragould woman by the woman's roommate of three months. Gloria Marie Tensley, 65, was arrested Tuesday after the discovery.

KAIT provides more details today that  shed more light on what was going on.

The identity of the dead man has not been released. But KAIT notes that Tensley once had a husband who lived with her. An arrest warrant says Tensley had been collecting the dead man's Social Security benefits by using his debit card. She's been charged with abuse of a corpse and fraud.
