Two people accused of killing a Northeast Baltimore woman and stashing the body in a freezer were indicted yesterday on murder and conspiracy charges.

A Howard County grand jury returned three-count indictments charging first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and felony assault against Anthony Tyrone Williams, 32, and Kathy Lynn Gray, 40.

Williams and Gray were arrested March 6 after a man contacted authorities and said a man named Tony tried to recruit him to help dump a body.

The informant agreed to help detectives and met with Williams and Gray at a Prince George's County gas station before following them to Gray's home in the 3200 block of Corporate Court in Ellicott City, according to charging documents.

The man helped the couple load a freezer onto the bed of his pickup truck, according to the documents. Investigators found the body of Tamaria Hughes, 36, in the freezer, according to police and charging documents. Hughes had been missing since March 4, family members said.

Williams, of the 5100 block of Barto Ave. in Suitland, told the informant that he killed someone who assaulted his girlfriend, according to the documents.

Williams and Gray are being held without bail at the Howard County Detention Center.
