Son Arrested after Father's Body Found in Freezer

Man accused of murder, held on $500,000 bond

A 28-year-old Plano man suspected of killing his father is behind bars and being held on $500,000 bond.

Plano police said U.S. Marshals Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force took Kenneth Alleman Midgley II into custody Tuesday. Plano police said Midgley was taken into custody at D/FW Airport by detectives and the task force.

Midgley II was wanted in connection with the killing of his father, Kenneth Alleman Midgley, who was found dead at a home in the 4700 block of Nocona Drive in Plano at about 2:30 p.m. April 15.

Plano police said in an arrest affidavit they were contacted by the daughter of Kenneth Midgley asking for them to check on her father. The affidavit also said the suspect, Kenneth Midgley II, told his mother "you can't talk to Dad because he's not alive."

Officers responded to the home and found a note saying "It's in the freezer."

According to investigators, a note was left behind signed by "Kenny" saying something bad happened. The note also said "Dad" was hit with a steel rod by the author of the note.

Officers found the body of the father Kenneth Midgley wrapped in a tarp in a freezer in the garage of the home. According to the affidavit, officers also found a steel rod nearby that appeared to have blood on it and the same tape used on the tarp.

Despite a previous report saying Midgley II was arrested in Mexico and returned to Texas, Plano police said he was arrested at D/FW Airport.

Midgley II was booked into jail on a charge of murder. His bond was set at $500,000.

The investigation into the death is ongoing.
