A woman who helped stuff a dead man into an ice chest in order to keep his Social Security checks coming will serve three years in prison.
Heidi Todd, 45, pleaded guilty to charges of unlawful disposal of human remains, mutilating or disinterring human remains and theft.
Police said about $34,000 collected by her and Debra Fisher, 58, in the two years after Debra’s father, Charles Fisher died of heart disease and their plot was discovered.
The roommates put Fisher, 83, into a 160-quart ice chest and kept it in the apartment they and the dead man shared.
Debra Fisher’s trial is scheduled Dec. 10.
