An Alabama evangelist was sentenced to life plus 51 years in prison today after police say he terrorized his family and killed his wife before storing her body in a freezer.
39-year old Anthony Hopkins was found guilty of the murder of his wife Arletha Hopkins as well as the rape and sodomy of his step daughter.
Hopkins was an evangelist that taught his wife and children wrong facts about the bible to help him get away with crimes.
Prosecutors say the reverend killed his wife Arletha because she caught him molesting a girl.
The preacher then buried her body outside a church before digging up it up and hiding it in a deep freezer.
Hopkins was taken into custody during a revival service and charged with murder, sodomy, incest, and sexual abuse.
His defense attorney claims that Hopkins admitted to putting his wife’s body in a freezer but has no idea how she died.
