SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — The body of the missing, pregnant wife of a U.S. Marine has been found deep in an abandoned mine shaft in Southern California, where her husband had been stationed.

San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said Monday that the remains of 20-year-old Erin Corwin were found Saturday and were identified by dental records Sunday.

Her alleged lover and former neighbor, 24-year-old Christopher Brandon Lee, was arrested at 9 p.m. Sunday at a traffic stop in Anchorage, Alaska, on an extradition warrant out of California.
