Charge filed against man; Wife's body likely found

KOEHLER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

Authorities have filed an assault charge against a Macomb County man whose wife has been missing for more than a month.

Warren police say they believe the remains of 51-year-old Kimberly Dejohn have been found in northern Michigan, but an identity hasn't been confirmed yet.

A body was discovered Wednesday in Cheboygan County's Koehler Township, 220 miles northwest of Detroit.

Loyd Dejohn has been in custody since May 30 on a domestic violence charge. An assault charge was added Thursday, and his bond was raised to $1 million.

A not-guilty plea was entered.

Police have said he's a person of interest in his wife's disappearance. Dejohn is getting a court-appointed lawyer after Melissa Simmons withdrew from the case.
