RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - Police have charged a Kentucky man in the killing of his wife, who has been missing since October.

Glenn Jackson, 39, was arrested Friday and charged with murder-domestic violence and evidence tampering, the Herald-Leader reported.

The body of his wife, Ella Diebolt Jackson, 48, is still missing. Richmond Police said in a release that when they executed a search warrant on the couple’s home and vehicles, they found her blood in the trunk of Glenn Jackson’s vehicle.

She was reported missing on Oct. 22. Police said Glenn Jackson told them that he last saw her Oct. 20.

Glenn Jackson worked as an instructor at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, where he has taught English and honors rhetoric. A university spokeswoman told the newspaper that Jackson has not been employed there since February.

Police said in the news release that they found “several recordings that Mrs. Jackson secretly made of her and Mr. Jackson’s arguments. Mrs. Jackson also told several individuals that she was afraid of Mr. Jackson, and if anything ever happened to her, her husband would be responsible.”
