Indiana man accused in wife's death faces charge in Florida

Federal authorities in Florida want an Indiana man accused of kidnapping and killing his estranged wife returned to the state.

The FBI in Jacksonville released a criminal complaint Tuesday charging 58-year-old Jarvis Madison with kidnapping that resulted in death. He is being held in Indiana on an unrelated charge.

The FBI says 44-year-old Rachael Madison didn't return from a jog Nov. 27 while staying with relatives in Ormond-by-the-Sea, which is near Daytona Beach. She'd been in Florida since Nov. 16. Investigators say Jarvis Madison called his wife's relatives inquiring about her whereabouts and had threatened her aunt.

A U.S. Marshals task force arrested Jarvis Madison on Friday morning in Louisville, Kentucky. The FBI says further investigation led law enforcement to a remote area near Knoxville, Tennessee, where Rachael Madison's remains were found that evening.
