Body of woman is found and 'significant amount of blood' detected at home | The Sun

A MAN has been arrested on homicide charges after the decomposed body of his missing wife was discovered.

Yolanda James, 40, was reported missing on June 24, after she was last seen at her home in Waco, Texas at around 11:30 p.m.


Cops initially suspected foul play in her disappearance as they combed the property in 7000 block of Craybrough Circle.

Forensics reportedly determined that a “significant amount of blood” was cleaned from the home as an investigation was opened.

Detectives swiftly interviewed members of Yolanda’s family, including 48-year-old husband Jose Villa-Denova.

According to reports, he was arrested and later charged with tampering with evidence and is being detained at the Travis County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
