Published 8:55 pm Wednesday, October 28, 2009

An autopsy Wednesday confirmed the death of 27-year-old Cathy Moseley was in fact the cause of multiple stab wounds.

Her body was discovered in a vehicle located in Isle of Wight County Tuesday. Her husband, 32-year-old Darren Moseley, is currently being held for his alleged connection in the murder, and has been charged with first-degree murder.

During the investigation, police said Cathy had been reported missing by her husband and mother Monday. Both reported they had not seen or heard from Cathy since Friday. Darren told police that his wife had left their Causey Avenue home while he was out purchasing cigarettes after having a discussion about trying to “fix their marital problems.”

Also Wednesday, the family released funeral arrangements for the victim.

Funeral services for the Lakeland graduate and mother of three, Cathy, will be held Saturday, Oct. 31 at 1 p.m. at the Lakeview Baptist Church with the Rev. John E. Jones officiating.

Harris Funeral Home is coordinating the arrangements and has set up a place on their Web site, www.vharrisfuneralhome.com, where people can leave their condolences.
