    A body found in southeast Memphis is Keila Ashford Freeman, Memphis police told FOX13.

    Freeman, 29, was reported missing on September 5, 2016. The missing mother of two has not been seen since.

    Police canvased the area of Barnstable Road and Keynon Drive and located the body on December 19.

    The main suspect in her disappearance has been her husband, Randall Freeman. FOX13 has learned Randall Freeman recently provided information about Keila’s whereabouts as part of an agreement.

    The plea agreement has not been accepted yet in court, but it centers around his arson and attempted murder charges.

    Randall Freeman is charged with 13 counts of attempted first degree murder and multiple counts of attempted aggravated arson.

    Trending stories:

    All those charges surround the firebombing of a family’s home, which police said he attempted twice before successfully setting it on fire. Freeman was indicted for four separate incidents.

    Detectives said Freeman threw Molotov cocktails at a home three different times while kids were inside. He is charged with 13 counts of attempted first degree murder, two counts of attempted aggravated arson, and one count of aggravated arson.

    The last time Freeman allegedly tried to firebomb the house, police wrote “the interior of the house was engulfed in flames.”

    That was on September 4 2016, just one day before his wife Keila Ashford Freeman, 29, disappeared.
