MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The husband of a Tennessee woman who had been missing for more than a year before her remains were found last month has been charged with second-degree murder.

The Shelby County district attorney's office says 32-year-old Randall Freeman was indicted Tuesday in the death of 29-year-old Keila Ashford Freeman.

Authorities say Keila Freeman disappeared from the couple's Memphis home on Sept. 6, 2016. Her remains were found in a wooded area in southeast Memphis on Dec. 19.

Randall Freeman has been in jail since his wife's disappearance on an arson charge. He is set to be arraigned Friday on the murder charge. His lawyer did not return a call seeking comment Thursday.
