DETROIT - The body found in northern Michigan's Koehler Township this week and suspected of belonging to a missing Warren woman was strangled to death, according to the Macomb County Medical Examiner's Office.
Investigators are awaiting DNA testing results to confirm the identification. Sources tell Local 4 it is likely 51-year-old Kimberly Dejohn, who has been missing since May 14.
Police say her husband, 46-year-old Loyd Dejohn, told them he last saw his wife when she left home following a fight May 14. He has admitted to shoving his wife, resulting in her hitting her head on a dresser.
Loyd Dejohn originally was charged with aggravated domestic violence, but during a hearing on Thursday, the court added an additional charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm. His bond was also brought up to $1 million.
