Man charged with murdering wife
Livonia, N.Y. A Livonia man is facing multiple charges, including murder, after police found the shot and burned body of his wife in the woods behind their home.
Gary Flemke, 61, has been charged with one count of murder in the second degree and one count of tampering with physical evidence. Both charges are felonies.
The body of Marcia Flemke was found early Saturday morning, about three to four days after Gary Flemke allegedly shot her three times, killing her.
Prosecutors also said Flemke attempted to burn his wife's body, but then decided to try and use hydrated lime to decompose the body.
Marcia Flemke's out-of-state relatives first contacted 911 on Friday after they were unable to reach her, prompting deputies to begin looking for her.
He is currently slated to appear in court again Thursday for a preliminary hearing based on the new murder charges, but prosecutors warned that may be unnecessary if the case is approved to go before a Livingston County grand jury.
