DENTON, Texas – Texas Rangers have made an arrest in a nearly 5-year-old missing person’s case.

Charles Stobaugh has been indicted by a grand jury and was picked up Thursday afternoon at his home in Sanger.

He faces charges for murder in the death of his estranged wife, Katherine Stobaugh.

Katherine, a mother and schoolteacher, disappeared in December 2004 after investigators said she went to visit the suspect.

Although he told investigators she had only stayed there for a short time and then left, the next morning her car was still parked in his driveway.

Investigators have from the beginning called Stobaugh their only suspect.

Texas Rangers searched his house and property extensively following Katherine’s disappearance. But the case went cold and no body was ever found.

Investigators have not yet released information about any new developments in the case.

Katherine’s family members apparently never gave up hope for an arrest.

They were in a courtroom to hear the indictment and watch Stobaugh being arraigned.
