WESTFIELD, Mass. (AP) — An Ohio man charged with killing his wife almost two decades ago and leaving her body in a remote area of western Massachusetts has been held without bail.
A not guilty plea to a murder charge was entered on behalf of 70-year-old Robert Honsch at his arraignment Monday in Westfield District Court.
The body of 53-year-old Marcia Honsch was found in October 1995 near an entrance to Tolland State Forest. She had been shot in the head.
At about the same time, his daughter, 17-year-old Elizabeth Honsch, was found dead behind a New Britain, Connecticut, strip mall.
The family lived in New York at the time.
Robert Honsch was arrested in July living on Ohio under an assumed name. He had remarried.
His court-appointed lawyers did not argue for bail.
