GRANBURY (1080 KRLD) - A Granbury man is locked up on a murder charge now that police have found remains they believe to be his wife.

The Hood County Sheriff's Office confirms that Edward Pautenis was picked up yesterday. His wife Jennifer has been missing since mid-October.

She was presumed dead but Hood County investigators now expect that to be confirmed once they get a positive identification from DNA tests. 

Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds says they hope to give the victim's family "some type of closure on this terrible tragedy."
