MEDFORD, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in north central Wisconsin plan to say more Tuesday about the arrest of a Merrill area man in the death of his wife.
Lincoln County sheriff’s deputies said they identified human remains found near Medford last Friday as those of 48-year-old Anita Bucki.
Her 49-year-old husband, Mark Bucki of the town of Corning, was arrested Monday on possible charges of first or second degree intentional homicide.
He first reported Anita missing on April 26th. At the time, officers quoted him as saying that he and his wife stayed up late to talk – and his wife was gone the next morning.
A long-time friend of Anita’s told reporters last week that the couple was living separately for over a month, and they were going to get a divorce.
Online court records did not show that a divorce case had been started.
