Detroit — A 29-year-old Detroit man faces a charge of open murder in the death of his wife, who was reported missing in March and whose remains were found months later in Ecorse, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office announced Wednesday.

Gregory McQueen and the victim, his wife Alisha McQueen, 28, had been living separately at the time Alisha McQueen was reported missing in March, prosecutors said. 

But months later on Aug. 25, a citizen found what appeared to be human bones on the 100 block of Mill Street in Ecorse, and called police.

Evidence technicians responded, and through Sept. 7 police collected a number of bones at the site, including "large pieces of cement with embedded human remains," which were found on the 7th, per a statement from the prosecutor's office.

Two weeks later, on Sept. 21, the remains were identified as those of Alisha McQueen.

Gregory McQueen was denied bond Tuesday at his arraignment and will remain at Wayne County Jail as his case is decided. McQueen is due for a preliminary exam on Nov. 13 at 25th District Court in Lincoln Park.
