Detroit — A Detroit man has been charged in the murder of his estranged wife Friday after her bones and clothing were found, prosecutors say.

In March, Alisha McQueen, 28, was reported missing by a relative. The couple was living separately at the time, prosecutor's said. At 6:16 p.m. on Aug. 28, an evidence technician was dispatched to the 100 block of Mill Street in Ecorse, where a citizen had discovered what appeared to be human bones. 

The Ecorse Police Department investigated Aug. 28 to Sept. 6 and recovered more bones, clothing and large pieces of cement with embedded human remains, which were placed into evidence. 

Police revealed Sept. 21 that the remains belonged to Alisha McQueen. 

Gregory McQueen has a criminal record that includes convictions for fourth-degree child abuse, second-degree home invasion and possession of marijuana, according to the Michigan Department of Corrections. 

"October is Domestic Violence Awareness month," said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy. "In 2017, this office reviewed almost 9000 warrants containing allegations of domestic violence throughout Wayne County. We have been in DV epidemic for years."
