MEDINA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - Matthew Lee Miller and Virginia Lea Dininger, both 32-years-old, have been arrested for abuse of a corpse.

Deputies responded to the 800 block of Armstrong Road shortly before noon on March 25 after two oilfield workers discovered a body in a field adjacent to an oil well. The victim was identified as 22-year-old Nathaniel Dakota Abshire of Medina Township.

Police eventually named Miller and Dininger as suspects. 

Investigators say Dininger and Abshire stayed over Miller's home Sunday and when Dininger woke up she found Abshire dead. Miller and Dininger then loaded Abshire's body into a car and left him at the Armstrong Road location.

Abshire's cause of death has not been determined.

Both suspects are locked up in the Wayne County Jail.
