How come they can't charge Pratt without a body? They did in a Michigan county south of here.

Doug Stewart, the estranged husband of missing woman Venus Stewart, has been formally charged with her abduction and murder, despite the fact that her body has not yet been recovered.

Venus vanished on the morning of April 26 from her parents’ home in Colon Township, Michigan after heading outside to check the mail.

Stewart was named a person of interest in his wife’s disappearance, almost from the beginning of the investigation.

Authorities note that another man, Richard Spencer, is an alleged co-conspirator in the case, claiming to have pretended to be Stewart in Virginia to give him an alibi while Stewart was actually in Michigan kidnapping and killing his wife.

Prosecutor John McDonough said Stewart and Spencer had planned the crime for about a month before the abduction of Venus took place. He also said that Stewart left investigators a bevy of evidence that connected him to the crime.

According to WKZO, the search for Venus’ body will now intensify.

i would asume that the blood stain found in the truck belongs to the wife and thats how they were able to charge him.

I haven't really followed much of the Venus Stewart case, and you probably are correct. There were many things that pointed to the husband such as a person in NC posing as the husband in his house, the shovel, etc.

For those who know the name of D/Sgt. Mike Scott, from the MSP in White Pigeon, he is also one of the MSP investigators on Mary's case. He worked very hard on the Stewart investigation and MSP and the St. Joseph Prosecutor are to be commended for their hard work.

Our condolences to the Stewart family and we hope and pray that her body may be recovered.
