(PAOLI) - Murder charges were filed Thursday afternoon against 48-year-old Jeffrey Fulton of Paoli.

After conducting a two-day search on property at 6226 South County Road 250 East, in Paoli, Indiana State Police investigators discovered human remains. The property is where both Jeffery and his wife 34-year-old Michelle Fulton lived.

Fulton's wife Michelle was reported missing on June 18, by a friend from Jasper.

State Police Detective Shane Staggs, with Orange County Sheriff's Department Detective Dennis Lanham, began an investigation into the disappearance Michelle. Investigators exhausted all leads and angles into the case, and the investigation became stalled.

Last week, investigators received new information into the disappearance of Michelle, leading them to obtain a search warrant on Wednesday for the property. After a two day search, with the assistance of anthropologists, human bones and remains were found in a wooded area of the property. Anthropologist excavated the area and exhumed the remains.

DNA testing will be used to identify the remains.

This investigation remains ongoing and this story will be updated when more information becomes available.
