NEW CASTLE, Indiana — Authorities have charged an eastern Indiana man with murder and abuse of a corpse in connection with the death of a woman whose body was found in a suitcase.
Indiana State Police say 37-year-old Anthony Dailey of New Castle was charged Thursday in connection with the death of 22-year-old Kirsten Sidwell, also of New Castle. A fisherman found her body April 2 at a state wildlife area in northern Henry County, about 40 miles east of Indianapolis.
Dailey is being held without bond. A judge entered not guilty pleas for him and appointed a public defender during an initial hearing.
Henry County Coroner Steve Hacker told The (Muncie) Star Press that Sidwell's body was found in a suitcase. Authorities are waiting for toxicology results before releasing a cause of death.
