A Lenawee County man charged in connection with the death of his wife who has been missing since 2021 has been ordered to stand trial.

Dale Warner was bound over Friday in Lenawee County's 2A District Court on two felony charges: an open murder charge and tampering with evidence.

Dee Ann Warner of Franklin Township.

Warner was charged in November last year in connection with the death of his wife, Dee Ann.

The mother of five and grandmother was last seen in April 2021 at her Munger Road home in Franklin Township, Crime Stoppers of Lenawee County said. She was 52 at the time.

A celebration of life was held for Dee Ann earlier this spring.

"Our mom was one of a kind and I’m grateful for all the time I had with her," said Rikkel Bock, her daughter, in a post on Facebook.
