HAZARD, Ky. (AP) -- Police say the husband of a missing woman has been charged with murder after investigators unearthed remains on his property.
Kentucky State Police said in a statement on Monday that troopers found the remains in a container that had been buried on the property of Bruce Dillon, who lives in the Aflex community of Pike County. Police says they sent the remains to Frankfort for an autopsy and to determine an identity.
Dillon's wife, Sherry Dillon, has been missing for more than a month.
Police say Dillon has been charged with murder and abuse of a corpse.
He was taken to the Pike County Detention Center. Online jail records do not say whether he has an attorney.
