Man Arrested for Wife's Murder

John Dewees, Jr., was arrested last Friday for killing his wife, Anja Dewees. Police found Anja dead at the couple's Magnolia Drive home on Thursday night. 

A neighbor called the police at approximately 9pm on Thursday evening, stating that Dewees was acting unusual. The call prompted the police to run a "well-being check" at the Dewees home. Dewees was arrested after an overnight investigation

Neighbors of the Dewees also told Eyewitness News that Anja's body might have been in the house for a couple of days. 

Dewees will be charged with first degree manslaughter.
