Massachusetts father Brian Walshe was indicted for the murder of his missing wife Ana, prosecutors announced Thursday.

Walshe was indicted on the first-degree murder charge by a Norfolk County grand jury, along with misleading police/obstruction of justice and for improper conveyance of a human body, the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office said, according to reports.

He could face life in prison if convicted.

He pleaded not guilty in Quincy District Court to the charge of murder during a January arraignment, but the indictment moves the case to Norfolk Superior Court where he will be arraigned in the coming weeks, the district attorney’s office said according to the Boston Herald.

Walshe, 48, is accused of killing his wife after she vanished from her Cohasset home on Jan. 1.

Police previously believed that he killed her in their basement, dismembered her and put her remains in a bag that was tossed in a dumpster before it was incinerated by trash services.

He was charged with murder in mid-January. He was previously in custody over charges of hindering the police probe into his wife.
