The body of a Youngstown woman found stuffed in a freezer was reported missing in February, and posted to the Ohio Attorney General’s Missing Persons’ website just last month. 

Shannon Elizabeth Graves, 28, had not been seen since Christmas Day 2016.

Her body was discovered last week by a Campbell man who was asked to store the padlocked freezer at his home.

Graves boyfriend, Arturo Novoa, 31, and Katrina Layton, 34, were arrested Sunday. Each are facing charges of abuse of a corpse.  

Prosecutors allege Novoa put Graves' body in a freezer while Layton took on her identity.   

Both are being held on $1 million bond.
