JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – A man is being held without bail after being charged with murder in the death of his wife, who went missing in 1993 in Jacksonville.

Michael Ray Haim, 49, was arrested last week in Waynesboro, North Carolina, and transferred to the Duval County jail.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told The Florida Times-Union ( ) that DNA tests identified skeletal remains found in a Jacksonville backyard as Bonnie Lynn Haim, who was 23 when she went missing in January 1993.

Police said a piece of bone was unearthed in December by workers excavating a backyard swimming pool at the Haims’ former home.

Jail records did not show Monday whether Michael Haim had an attorney. Haim’s next court hearing is scheduled Sept. 24.
