Prosecutors charged him a day earlier with the murder of his wife, Maya Millete, and illegal possession of an assault weapon. He could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted.

Maya Millete, 40, disappeared on January 7.  Larry Millete, whom police considered “a person of interest” in the case, said Maya left of her own accord, leaving her cell phone the couple’s three children.

The district attorney said Maya was in a “toxic relationship” and that she called a divorce lawyer before she vanished. Larry opposed the divorce.

Larry Millete’s attorney, Bonita Martinez,  told KFMB-TV she was surprised by the arrest “since they have no proof Maya is dead, and I believe she is still alive.”

District Attorney Summer Stephan said the law allows the filing of a murder charge without having a victim’s body.

Authorities and Maya’s family members are still asking for the public’s help in finding her remains.
