    From the February 23, 2008, Tulsa World:

    Authorities seeking witness in Navy veteran's disappearance
    They say the man's wife might have killed him and that the witness might hold the clues.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma County authorities are seeking the public's help in finding a potentially key witness in the case of a missing Navy veteran who they think has been murdered.

    Manuel Salado , 34, of Oklahoma City has not been seen since Oct. 8, and Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said Friday that authorities believe that he was killed by his wife, Exondia Salado, 36.

    But police have not been able to find Manuel Salado 's body and have not filed any charges in the case.

    . . .
    Authorities began investigating tips that Manuel Salado , a member of the Army Reserves, might have been killed before a missing-person report was filed, First Assistant District Attorney Scott Rowland said.

    The Army has said Salado missed a weekend of drills after Oct. 8, Prater said.

    . . .
    From the December 18, 2008, Oklahoman:

    . . .

    Exondia J. Salado was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder in the shooting death of her husband, whose body has not been found. She was arrested Tuesday in Florida.

    Salado, 36, told a witness she shot Manuel Salado twice in the bedroom of their Oklahoma City apartment on Oct. 8, 2007. . . She wrapped the body in plastic and a sheet before burning it at an abandoned house, the witness told police.

    Authorities have been unable to locate the house.

    . . .

    Exondia Salado's computer had evidence of Internet searches dealing with "death, gunshot wounds and recipes for cooking a human body," according to the affidavit.
    And the most recent news, from May 16, 2009:

    State Briefs: Trial can go on, but body not found

    A judge Friday ruled the evidence against a murder defendant is sufficient for a trial, even though her husband’s body was never found.

    Exondia J. Salado, 37, is accused of fatally shooting Manuel Salado. . .

    She also apparently researched on the Internet how to cut up a body, how to keep a hostage, how to build a barbecue pit and how a body decomposes, according to other testimony. One article put into evidence was "Butchering the Human Carcass for Human Consumption.”

    His body was never found, but his wife's murder trial is going on right now. The jurors heard yesterday of the very long list of incredibly gruesome computer searches made by his wife over a period of a few months.
    Searches are listed at link: http://newsok.com/jurors-at-murder-t...rticle/3551949

    Unfortunately a body may never be found - "police believe Exondia (wife) keeps his body in the home for a week before being dismembered and cooking his body in an abandoned house in a rural part of town"

    At least she has life without parole!

    The surname is spelt Salado in this article, includes a lot of information.
