WARREN, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a woman whose body was buried in northern Michigan died of strangulation.

Warren police believe it’s the body of 51-year-old Kimberly Dejohn, who disappeared in mid-May, but the identity still hasn’t been confirmed. Her husband, Loyd Dejohn, is in custody on charges of assault and domestic violence and is considered a person of interest in the case.

The Macomb County medical examiner’s office performed an autopsy. The body was discovered Wednesday in a shallow grave in Cheboygan County’s Koehler Township, 220 miles northwest of Detroit.

Warren police Commissioner Jere Green tells the Detroit Free Press (https://on.freep.com/1lTobHr) that the body was wrapped in plastic and carpet.
