Air Force Major Charged With Wife's Murder

Bail for Andre McDonald, 40, is set at $2 million

An Air Force major based in San Antonio has been charged with murder after authorities found the remains of his wife whom he reported missing in March.

Andre McDonald, 40, is being held Monday at the Bexar County Jail. Bail is set at $2 million.

Sheriff's officials said they found the body of 29-year-old Andreen McDonald on Thursday east of Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis.

Andre McDonald reported his wife missing March 1 and was indicted on a charge of tampering with or fabricating evidence after authorities determined he bought a shovel, an ax, gasoline and a "burn barrel" a day later.

Court records show investigators also found blood and hair in the couple's bathroom.

Jail records do not list an attorney who could speak on McDonald's behalf.
