(Scroll down for video) A married man was arrested on charges of murder after allegedly killing his mistress because he wanted to conceal the affair from her U.S. soldier husband, police in Alaska said.
Police in California said that the body of the missing pregnant wife of a Marine, was found in the bottom of an abandoned mine.
The body of 19-year-old Erin Corwin, was found two months after police began searching for the woman. Her remains were identified through dental records.
24-year-old Christopher Brandon Lee, was arrested in Anchorage, on suspicion of murder under an extradition warrant from California.
Corwin was in the early stages of pregnancy when she disappeared from her home in Twentynine Palms. Her husband, Marine Cpl. Jonathan Corwin, reported her missing.
Investigators learned that Corwin and Lee were having an affair and that Lee could be the father of the unborn child.
Lee told investigators that he was not with Corwin the day she died and he said that although the two had kissed, they never had sex.
