TERRE HAUTE — Enzert G. Lewis, 38, previously considered a person of interest in the death of Allyson J. Elmi-Lewis, 39, is being charged with her killing.

At a news conference this afternoon, the Vigo County Prosecutor’s Office announced the murder charge against Lewis, who also is accused of altering a scene of death, obstruction of justice and invasion of privacy.

The Terre Haute woman’s remains were found earlier this month in eastern Vigo County. Lewis, the victim’s estranged husband, was being held in the Vigo County jail on a misdemeanor charge for violating a no-contact order with the victim.

Lewis will be in court at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
