A man pleaded guilty to murdering his wife before wrapping her body in plastic and stuffing her body in an industrial-sized freezer in Texas.

Curtis Allen Holliday, 62, pleaded guilty to murdering his wife Chi Thi Lien Le, 29, in April 2020, at their Harris County home in the Houston area.

“Given the uncertainties of a trial, even though I believe we had some compelling evidence that this was a suicide, we decided to go with the certainty of the outcome rather than risk a life sentence,” his defense attorney Dick DeGuerin said, according to KHOU.

Prosecutors said the plea results in justice for the victim and her family.

“We are pleased that we were able to get that accountability and he took responsibility for what he did in this case,” prosecutor Lindsey Bondurant said.

A probable cause arrest affidavit says a victim’s advocate at the Harris County Sheriff’s Office contacted deputies on April 30, 2020, after Le’s aunt called her to say she hadn’t heard from her niece in at least two weeks.
