A Florida man is being held without bond on charges that he killed his wife shortly before their first wedding anniversary, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office said.
Timothy Allen Upthegrove, 53, was arrested on Christmas Eve after police found what they believed to be his wife’s remains in the woods. Police found the body based on information they obtained through interviews with Upthegrove, they claimed.

Instead of seeking out medical attention, the trio allegedly put a plastic bag over Rose’s head, strangling him with a pair of jumper cables.
“Wayda said that she knew Rose was alive prior to the
