TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A judge has set a $1 million bond for a northwest Ohio man who is charged along with his wife in the slaying of the wife’s former lover.

Thirty-six-year-old Robert Strauss appeared in a Toledo courtroom Friday. A judge set a $1 million bond for 36-year-old Desirae Strauss on Monday.

The Toledo couple is charged with bludgeoning to death 52-year-old Brian Martin of Ypsilanti, Michigan. Martin’s daughter reported him missing June 28.

According to a police report, Desirae Strauss’s mother told officers that she saw Martin at the Strauss’ home on June 22.

Martin’s body has yet to be found. Toledo police say evidence found at the couple’s home indicates Martin was attacked there.

The daughter told police her father and Desirae Martin had been romantically involved for three years.
