Man arraigned on murder charge in wife's slaying

WARREN, Mich. (AP) -

A prosecutor says the Detroit-area husband of a woman found dead and buried in northern Michigan has made incriminating statements.

William Cataldo made the disclosure in court Thursday as Loyd Dejohn was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Kimberly Dejohn. Her body was found in June in Cheboygan County, about a month after she disappeared.

Defense attorney Tim Barkovic says Dejohn maintains his innocence. The Warren man is being held on $1 million bond.

Cataldo says Dejohn has admitted his involvement "in this murder." Kimberly Dejohn was strangled.

The Macomb County prosecutor's office added charges of murder, disinterment of a body and aggravated domestic violence. Dejohn has been in custody since late May.

His mother, Ann Johnson, says it's hard to believe Dejohn is charged with murder.
