Posted:

RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- A Sturtevant man is in custody after the body of a missing woman was discovered in a ditch in rural Rock County.

Racine County sheriff's deputies arrested the 47-year-old man at his place of business in Racine Tuesday afternoon. Thirty-three-year-old Kristin Miller disappeared Jan. 1. The Racine Journal Times reports the suspect's son is the father of Miller's 2-year-old daughter.

Authorities say a man checking survey stakes on his property near Brodhead discovered Miller's body Monday.

Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden would not provide any details on the woman's cause of death.

Family members say Miller also has an 11-year-old son.
