ALLEGAN, Mich. (AP) -

A body found buried in a remote area has been identified as a Michigan teacher who's been missing since May.

Police say Theresa Lockhart's identity was confirmed Wednesday, a day after her husband killed himself at his Portage home and left a map where investigators could find the body in Allegan County. Her body was found Tuesday.

Portage Public Safety Director Nicholas Armold says Christopher Lockhart left a note, admitting that he killed his wife and expressing remorse.

Lockhart was suspected in his wife's disappearance but hadn't been charged. Armold says police "didn't have enough to run with it."
