LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a man has been arrested and charged with abusing a corpse that was found near Churchill Downs. 

Andrew R. Strong, 42, was arrested Saturday. On Friday, police say they recovered "what appears to be a human body" buried behind a house on Vetter Ave. A witness told police that the victim unlawfully entered Strong's home, and was then shot by Strong.
