The coroner says the autopsy of Cynthia Dinwiddie shows she died four years ago from a cardiac event brought on by stress and blood loss from a hammer attack.
Dinwiddie's husband Larry faces a second-degree murder charge in the case. Detectives found the body in the freezer in late November. A sting led to Dinwiddie's arrest. The coroner says the case is still being investigated as a homicide.
Toxicology tests could take several more weeks.
