Woman Charged With Killing And Burying Husband

A Mount Pleasant woman is charged with killing her husband in his sleep, then burying his body in the back yard. Police found the body of 44-year-old Weldon Mitchell at a home in the 1100 block of East 9th street in Mount Pleasant. Police say his body was buried in a shallow grave about 30 yards from the backyard of the home. Police say he'd been shot at least once and had numerous knife wounds.

His wife, 33-year-old Paula Mitchell, is now charged with his murder. She's being held in the Titus County jail on 250,000 bail. The search for Weldon began after he did not show up for work for two days as a custodian at Mount Pleasant I.S.D.
