For years he was suspected in the 1989 disappearance of 14-year-old Aundria Bowman, but it wasn't until 2019 when Bowman was charged with a separate crime in Virginia that the investigation broke open.

Police searched his Allegan County property and found Aundria's remains buried under concrete.

The trial is slated to start on Jan. 11, 2022.
