SAN ANTONIO — An Air Force major in Texas has been indicted on a murder charge in the death of his wife, whose remains were discovered in July after she was reported missing months earlier.

A Bexar County grand jury on Wednesday indicted Andre McDonald for the death of 29-year-old Andreen McDonald. The Bexar County District Attorney’s office says McDonald was also indicted on a charge of tampering with evidence during the investigation.
