A 33 year-old man has been charged with the murder of his 74 year-old great aunt.

Victoria Kilbourne of Midland was reported missing on June 25.

Her body was found in a shallow grave on rural property near Onaway on Saturday, June 30.

Investigators and prosecutors believe Kilbourne was murdered by her great nephew, Joel Wallace.  Wallace was arraigned on multiple charges this week, including premeditated homicide in the first degree and homicide felony murder.  He owns a hunting camp in the Onaway area.

According to the WNEM.com, Kilbourne’s legs, wrists, and mouth were bound with black tape identical to the kind found in Wallace’s truck.

Wallace is being held without bond.
