SAN ANTONIO — An Air Force Reserve major in Texas has been indicted on a murder charge in the death of his wife, whose remains were discovered in July after she was reported missing months earlier.

A Bexar County grand jury on Wednesday indicted Andre McDonald for the death of 29-year-old Andreen McDonald. The Bexar County District Attorney’s office says McDonald was also indicted on a charge of tampering with evidence during the investigation.

Andreen McDonald was last seen alive Feb. 28, and her husband was initially arrested in connection with the case. Authorities say Andreen McDonald’s remains were found in July on a Bexar County ranch.

Andreen McDonald’s remains were found when the owner of the ranch asked a friend to help remove two cow skulls that the landowner knew were located on his 50 acres, according to court records. The friend discovered what he believed to be a human skull and bones and evidence at the scene showed the area had been set on fire, according to court records.

Andreen McDonald’s remains were identified using dental records.

Andre McDonald’s attorney, John Convery, told the San Antonio Express-News that his client is presumed innocent, and says he’s awaiting more documents and information from prosecutors.
