Authorities track down Perry County woman after husband's death

Authorities have tracked down a Perry County woman after her husband was found dead in their Janice Community home.

After an extensive search for Margaret Diane Campbell, 70, police discovered her in Wiggins late Saturday night. She is now in custody and being questioned about the mysterious death of her husband, Robert Campbell, 74. His decomposing body was found in their trailer home in the Janice Community on Friday.

Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith said that Campbell may have been dead for several weeks before his body was discovered. Smith says relatives of the couple had requested that officers check in on them, after they hadn't heard from them for awhile.
