Apr 14, 2010 5:28:00 PM - thestate.com
A South Carolina man has been charged with murder in the death of his wife, hours after he told authorities that she was missing.

Multiple media outlets reported that 53-year-old Daniel Monarch was arrested and charged on Wednesday.

Police say Monarch reported his wife missing Wednesday morning after he said she went for a morning jog but didn't return to the couple's Conway home.

Police say Phyllis Monarch had last been seen at around 7:45 a.m. Investigators found the 49-year-old woman's body in a ditch in Conway several hours later, at about 1:30 p.m.

Police did not say how she died. Horry County Coroner Robert Edge says an autopsy is scheduled for Thursday morning.
