Willow, Alaska (KINY) Michael Kilgo, 59, is charged with first degree murder in the death of his wife.
The body of Hattie Labuff-Kilgo, 56, was found Tuesday, three miles from where Alaska State Troopers located her vehicle. She had traveled to Petersville on Saturday and hadn't been seen since.
A dispatch from Troopers said Mr. Kilgo was also charged with felony tampering with evidence. The cause of death was listed as blunt force trauma.
Co-workers called authorities when Mrs. Labuff-Kilgo failed to appear for work. The vehicle was found on Petersbille Road about 35 miles off the Parks Highway.
Mr. Kilgo is being held without bail to await a court appearance.
