5 arrested after Florida man's body found in freezer

PANAMA CITY — Five people have been charged in connection with the death of an 80-year-old Panama City man whose body was found in a freezer.

The Bay County Sheriff's Office says deputies found the body of Raymond Harvey Gsell in a freezer at his home after receiving information about a possible homicide.

The Panama City News Herald reports authorities believe Gsell was strangled by his wife and another woman after an argument about money to purchase illegal narcotics. Gsell refused and an altercation ensued.

Judy Lynn Gsell and Dawn Rutham Ross have been charged with murder. Three others have been charged in connection with helping dispose the body.
