Brian Walshe was indicted for his missing wife Ana Walshe's alleged murder on Thursday, has learned.

A Massachusetts grand jury indicted Brian on first-degree murder "for misleading a police investigation/obstruction of justice, and for improper conveyance of a human body," Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey announced.

If convicted, the dad of three faces life in prison without the possibility of parole.

As reported, Brian was accused of killing his 39-year-old wife, who disappeared from the family's Cohasset home on January 1. Ana was reported missing by her employer, Tishman Spyer, on January 4.

Authorities believe Brian murdered his wife and dismembered her body in their basement. They think he put her remains in trash bags and threw them in a dumpster. The bags were picked up by trash services and destroyed.

After obtaining a search warrant of the Walshe family home, investigators discovered blood in the basement and a bloodied hatchet. Internet history allegedly showed he searched "how to dispose of a 115-pound woman's body" on January 1 and the days that followed.

Law enforcement found a surveillance video that showed a man who looked like Brian tossing trash bags into a dumpster at an apartment complex in a nearby town.

Those bags had already been taken to an incinerator when authorities went searching for them. Ana's body was never found.

Brian told cops he last saw Ana alive on New Year's Day morning, alleging she left their home abruptly for a “work emergency.” He pled not guilty to her alleged murder following his arrest.
