Clark County Sheriff Louis Rosandich says Shaun W. Rudy is now considered a suspect in the death of his pregnant wife, Christine.

The Sheriff said at a Thursday press conference, that new information had come to light detailing the movements of the two before she disappeared.
Rosandich told reporters Mr. and Mrs. Rudy were suspected of participating in a burglary in Iowa on November 8th. He also says the two apparently got into some sort of argument on November 12th in Clark County. Rosandich says information indicates Shaun shot Christine, removed her body and then transported it to another location where he dismembered his wife body.

Rosandich says futher investigation has revealed that Shaun allegedly disposed of the remains in the Chippewa River north of Chippewa Falls.

That's where divers have been searching for evidence since the beginning of January, although the Chippewa County Sheriff's Department has declined to comment on what divers were searching for.

Clark County Sheriff Louis Rosandich says three weapons have been recovered that were stolen in Iowa.

Shaun Rudy is currently being held in the Clark County Jail on weapons and drug charges, but he has not been charged in connection with his wife's death.
