(CBS) ST. PAUL, Minn. - Jeffery Trevino, a Minnesota man who called to report his wife, Kira Trevino, missing on Feb. 22, is now charged with her murder, CBS Minnesota reports.
Jeffery Trevino was charged with felony second-degree murder by the Ramsey County Attorney's Office Thursday morning in connection with his wife's disappearance. The charges have been signed by a judge and bail was set at $500,000, the station reports.
Kira was last seen the night of Feb. 21 when she went to work at the Mall of America. Her car was discovered on a parking ramp the next day with her not around, prompting security to call St. Paul police.
Earlier this week, investigators found enough evidence, though they haven't said what it is, to place Jeffery in the Ramsey County Jail on suspicion of homicide, the station reports. Kira's body has not been found.
According to CBS Minnesota, Kira's mother, Marcie Steger, said she felt angry, betrayed, upset and confused upon hearing of Jeffery's arrest. Kira's siter, Keri Anne Steger, said the thought that she could be dead is haunting their family every single minute.
Keri Anne reportedly said Jeffery and Kira had been together for eight years and married for at least three, but she never really got to know him well.
