Husband Held Drug-Fueled "Death" Party For Dying Wife, Says Police

We can't decide if this guy's a hero or a horrible person.  Either way, he's no Boy Scout. 

According to authorities, a 58-year-old man in Minnesota hosted a meth-fueled “death party” for his dying wife who passed away last week.

Duane Arden Johnson has been charged with criminal neglect and receiving stolen property. He was booked at Brown County Jail.

Officers responded to a 911 call made by Johnson early Thursday morning where they found the body of 69-year-old Debra Lynn Johnson.

Strangely, the words “Death Parde God Hell” was spray-painted in red on the front door of the home.

Authorities say Johnson ran out of the house naked to inform police his wife was dead inside.

A short time later Brown County sheriff's deputies found him in a bathtub scrubbing white and black “things” off his body, whatever that means.

Johnson has been accused of removing his wife from New Ulm Medical Center so he could bring her home for a methamphetamine party to spend her last days “rocking out” to the song, “Metal Health” by Quiet Riot.

He claims she begged him not to let her die in a nursing home, so that's what he did.

Debra Johnson suffered from mental illness, diabetes and high blood pressure. She stopped taking her anti-psychotic medication and has suffered from two heart attacks in the past.

The court documents claim Johnson had sex with his wife about two hours before she died, then he washed her body and wrapped it in linen because that's what "the Bible told (him) to do.”

The sheriff's office said Johnson also had as many as 47 guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in the home, some of which were previously stolen.

If guilty, what should the punishment be?  We're having a hard time wrapping our minds around this one.
