VERVIERS, Belgium -- A dinner party guest in Belgium who went to freeze some leftovers found the bodies of her host's wife and stepson in the freezer, authorities said.

Police in Verviers, Belgium, said the woman told other guests of her discovery. They called police but didn't tell their 42-year-old host, who was arrested, the British newspaper the Independent reported.

Police said they believe the bodies of the man's wife and 12-year-old stepson had been in the freezer for weeks, the Independent reported.

Autopsies were scheduled for Friday.

"The couple was already known to police for domestic violence," Christine Wilwerth of the Verviers prosecutor's office, told the Independent.
