Illinois woman accused in 1988 Alaska murder

According to the Juneau Empire, a woman, Jane Reth, has been indicted for killing her husband, Scott M. Coville, in Alaska in 1988. An Illinois TV station says she now lives in that state. This case is of interest to me because Mr. Coville’s body has never been find — making him a candidate for placement on the Charley Project. The couple had only been married for a few months, according to yet another article. They married in late 1987; he was reported missing in April 1988.

If only I could find a picture. Maybe one will appear as the case progresses.
