Gravedigger allegedly kills wife, buries her in cemetery

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – A gravedigger who is charged with killing his wife and burying her in a Virginia cemetery has been arrested in Charlotte.

U.S. Marshals arrested 30-year-old Adan Quiroz Rodriguez on Thursday and charged him with murder in the death of his wife Ashley Rodriguez.

The U.S. Marshals Service says the Alleghany County, Va., Sheriff's Office began investigating the disappearance of Ashley Rodriguez after she failed to show up for work.

Officers found her remains in Alleghany Memorial Park in a part of the cemetery that was only accessible to employees. Deputies say Adan Rodriguez worked at the cemetery.

They think he shot her and buried her there.

Rodriquez was in the Mecklenburg County jail awaiting extradition. It was not clear if he has an attorney.
