    The wheels of justice turn, even if they turn slowly. It was fortunate the "new" wife gave LE permission to dig.

    Body of Missing Maryland Woman Found Under Shed After 21 Years; Husband Arrested on Murder Charges

    Police in Howard County, Md. announced Thursday that the body of a woman who went missing in 1991 was discovered underneath a shed on the property of her husband, who has been arrested and charged with first- and second-degree murder.

    Robert Jarrett, of Elkridge, is accused of killing his wife, Christine, after the couple had an argument in their home in January 1991, the Howard County Police Department said in a press release. Investigators visited the home—which is now occupied by Robert Jarrett's second wife, from whom he is estranged—on a recent tip that further suggested the possibility that Christine Jarrett's death involved foul play.

    Jarrett's current wife allowed investigators to search the property, and a body was found buried in concrete underneath the shed's floorboards, police said.

    The remains have not yet been examined, but personal effects found on the body suggest it is that of Christine Jarrett.Jarrett was 34 years old when she disappeared in 1991 and stormed out of her home after an argument with Robert...

    The couple had two children, then ages five and 10, and Jarrett left their home on Claire Drive between 10 p.m. and midnight the night of January 3. It is believed she was carrying $4,000 in cash,...

    Robert Jarrett reported his wife missing a few days later, and while police suspected foul play was involved in the disappearance, they lacked until now sufficient evidence.

    Christine Jarrett was declared dead in January 1998.

    Robert Jarrett is being held without bond at the Howard County Detention Center without bond, Elkridge Patch reported.

    We need to allow LE on the property to search for any missing spouse when there is evidence of past domestic issues. Always. Period.

    utterly astounded that they never took DNA from her body, surely once they knew she was to be cremated they would have done so,

    I think the defense is just grasping for straws. She was positively identified using dental records. Her family also identified some items found with the body.

    I don't think any jury is going to buy the theory that he buried someone else in his back yard or that this body is not that of Christine.

    I don't doubt they have a positive ID but it is very unprofessional and a huge mistake not to remove any doubts by taking DNA, I would have thought it would have been standard practice to take DNA from any corpse that is found

    The article just says that no DNA test was preformed. That doesn't necessarily mean that tissue samples were not kept that a DNA test could be preformed on.

    But if this is already to trial and the defense has brought up the fact that they would have liked to have an independent DNA study done to verify that the body was Christine in earlier hearing it make you wonder if there are any samples. But I agree that if the prosecution knew the body would be cremated samples should have been ordered to be kept for this very reason.

    I guarantee you if there were tissue samples that the prosecution could supply the defense for their own independent DNA testing, I think the defense would decline to have those tests done because it would prove without a doubt that the body is Christine and that wouldn't help their case.

    I never understood why LE never had a search warrant to search the property.
