OPELOUSAS, LA (WAFB) - Deputies have arrested a man after he allegedly told them he'd known his wife had been dead for more than six months.

Arthur Tillett, 59, of Opelousas, was booked on obstruction of justice charges, but investigators said he denies being involved with his wife's death.

Deputies with the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office have been searching for Tillett's wife, Sandra, 64, for more than a week after her daughter called them and said she hadn't heard from her mother since July.
