Authorities in Minnesota have arrested the husband of a missing Mall of America store manager on suspicion of homicide.
Jeffrey Trevino, 37, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of probable cause homicide. He is cooperating with investigators, police said.
Kira Trevino, 30, went missing Friday after failing to show up for work at a Delia’s clothing store in Bloomington.
Saturday, authorities located the missing woman’s white Chevy Cobalt near the mall’s parking area.
“The car was towed and processed by the St. Paul police department, and potential evidence was found in the car,” police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos said at a press conference Tuesday.
“We are not going to elaborate what if anything was found in the car because of the investigation that is currently going on,” Sgt. Paulos added.
During the execution of a search warrant at the couple’s St. Paul home, Sgt. Paulos said authorities “located enough evidence to show that a crime had been committed in the house.”
However, officials did not elaborate on the evidence found, citing the continuing investigation.
“Investigators continue to look at everything…what happened in the moments before, after and during the disappearance. This is an active investigation,” Sgt. Paulos said.
“The body has not been located. She is still considered a missing person,” Sgt. Paulos added.
Kira is described as 5 feet, 4 inches tall with blonde hair and green eyes. She weighs approximately 110 pounds.
St. Paul police investigators are asking anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Kira Trevino to call the police homicide unit at 651-266-5650.
Jeffrey Trevino has not been assigned an attorney as of Wednesday afternoon, the Ramsey County Public Defender’s Office told HLN.
