SAN ANTONIO (AP) — An Air Force major based in San Antonio has been charged with murder after authorities found the remains of his wife whom he reported missing in March.

Forty-year-old Andre McDonald was being held Monday at the Bexar County jail. Bail was set at $2 million.

Sheriff’s officials said they found the body of 29-year-old Andreen McDonald on Thursday east of Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis.

Andre McDonald reported his wife missing March 1 and was indicted on a charge of tampering with or fabricating evidence after authorities determined he bought a shovel, an ax, gasoline and a “burn barrel” a day later.
