Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell confirmed Ellen Huebner, 45, of Aberdeen, was arrested at approximately 10:30 a.m. on Monday.

Information about the disappearance of her husband, Steven Huebner, was released on Wednesday, Feb. 27.

He was last seen on Feb. 23 on Buck Road, which is near the Aberdeen Marina.

Deputies found a body on Buck Road on Friday, March 1. The body was found in the backyard of a home.

"It was folded up and looked like it was in maybe a couple of shower curtains and a tarpaulin," said Cantrell. "And it was inside of a blue tote bag."

The identity of the body has not officially been released, but Cantrell believes the body is that of Steven Huebner.

On Monday, the sheriff said the body is still in Pearl for an autopsy.

Ellen Huebner's bond was set at $150,000. She later bonded out of the jail.
