Man faces hearing in wife’s 2014 death; 2 kids missing

Associated Press

Detroit — A Detroit man charged with killing his estranged wife whose two children remain missing faces a pretrial hearing.

Alicia Fox’s body was found in June 2014. Crime Stoppers of Michigan says a $3,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the children.

Erin Justice’s hearing is scheduled for Thursday in Detroit. Trial is planned for September.

A judge earlier said there was enough evidence to send Justice to trial for first-degree murder and other charges. A man who pleaded guilty to being an accessory testified against Justice, saying he helped move Fox’s body and that the children were alive when he last saw them.

Kaylah Hunter was 6 years old and Kristian Justice was 8 months when they were reported missing in May 2014 along with their mother.
