The husband of a Kentucky woman who went missing this week after dropping her child off at school has been arrested for her murder, according to investigators.
Burden’s arrest comes days after his wife, Erica Burden, 27, was reported missing from the Bonnieville community of Hart County in Kentucky, WLKY reported.
According to police, the investigation into Burden’s disappearance began Nov. 9 after she dropped her child off at school just before 8 a.m. and had not been seen or heard from since then, according to WLKY.
State police in Bowling Green, Kentucky, were notified of her disappearance and had been searching for her since Nov. 11, when human remains were found in the Upton community of Larue County, Kentucky, WLKY reported.
Police say the remains were recovered and “positively identified” as Erica Burden, according to WLKY.
Officials said an autopsy is pending, WLKY reported.
William Burden was booked into the Larue County Detention Center, according to WLKY.
