PAOLI, Ind. (AP) - A southern Indiana man whose wife is missing has been charged with murder following the discovery of remains on his property.

Indiana State Police say 49-year-old Jeffrey Fulton of Paoli (pay-OH’-lee) was arrested Thursday afternoon in connection with the disappearance of 34-year-old Michelle Fulton.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Philip Hensley says a tip led investigators to obtain a search warrant for the property about 40 miles south of Bloomington on Wednesday. Hensley says bones and other remains were found in a wooded area. He says the remains haven’t been identified, and anthropologists continued excavating the site Thursday.

Hensley says Michelle Fulton disappeared more than four months ago.

Jeffrey Fulton was being held in the Orange County Jail. Online court records did not show an attorney for him.
