Arturo Novoa, 31, and his on-again off-again girlfriend Katrina Layton, 34, are scheduled to be arraigned on Monday on charges including abuse of a corpse and obstruction of justice, according to WFMJ.

Yet, when the power was cut in Novoa's home, he took the freezer to his friend Kenny Eshenbaugh to store in his basement.

The Campbell homeowners who took the freezer into their possession say they have been friends with Novoa for five years and are "shocked". He is charged with abuse of a corpse and is in custody in the Mahoning County Jail.

The body was found in a home in Campbell on Saturday, but police believe it had been moved from Youngstown.

Layton, who soon after became Novoa's live-in girlfriend, "started living the life of the victim", Youngstown City Prosecutor Dana Lantz told BuzzFeed News. Becoming suspicious about its contents, the friend opened the fridge and discovered the remains inside.

Graves' sister, Debbie, said Graves dated Novoa and lived with him in a flat in Youngstown's west side. Graves was then listed as a missing person on the Ohio Attorney General Mark DeWine's website.

Ant-Man and the Wasp footage was also shown: Wasp shown in her new suit, which is more yellow. Van Dyne appeared briefly in flashbacks during Ant-Man, but her face was never shown.

At this point it's unclear whether the body is at all connected to the missing person case of Shannon Graves, a 28-year-old Youngstown woman who vanished in February of this year.

'(They) basically, assumed her life and her belongings'.

"Early this week, we'll hopefully be able to determine the cause of death and a positive identification", he said.

According to police, Layton bought the fridge where the body was placed.

Bobovnik said no one has been charged with murder yet because there is still no cause of death.
