Woman accused of cooking neighbor to hide evidence

A Volusia County woman is accused of cooking her neighbor after strangling and dismembering him to hide evidence.

Court documents obtained by WESH-TV state that Angela Stoldt, of Deltona, tried to cremate her neighbor’s body by putting several body parts in an oven and in pots on the stove. When that didn’t work, she put his body parts in bags and threw them in the trash.

A grand jury in Daytona Beach last week upgraded Stoldt’s charges to first-degree murder from second degree murder in the death of her neighbor, 36-year-old limousine driver James Sheaffer.

According to the documents, Stoudt drugged Sheaffer using the muscle relaxant Flexeril and drove him to a nearby cemetery, where they argued. According to the documents, Stoudt snapped when Sheaffer threatened to kill her.

According to the documents, Stoldt stabbed him in both eyes with an ice pick and used a tool to wrap around Sheaffer’s throat to strangle him. The documents state she drove the body back to her home, where she cut it up with a hacksaw.

Stoldt was being held at the Volusia jail without bail.
