Burnside is currently being held in custody in Lake Charles, Louisiana, after being arrested in Texas Wednsday.

One day after Carol was found dead in January, her husband spoke to WTOK, saying: ‘The world is not going to be the same without her.’

‘If you were a part of the community, if you were a part of the family, if you were a part of the church, if you were a part of her life, you felt her love,’ Burnside said of his wife.
