More than 37 years after James Krauseneck Jr. told police he found his wife with a woodcutting ax buried deep into her head, he has been accused of her murder.

Brighton police chief David Catholdi said it was telling that not a single piece of DNA evidence belonging to anyone other than Krauseneck was found at the house.

Catholdi told the Tacoma News Tribune: 'I understand people want a singular piece of evidence that can directly point to James Krauseneck.  

'This is not one of those cases.'  

Krauseneck was released on a $100,000 bail last week and was forced to hand in his passport. His trial is due to start in June next year.
