Body of missing Pa. woman found; man arrested

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police in western Pennsylvania say they have found the body of a woman missing for several days, and a man has been arrested in her death.

Allegheny County homicide detectives said the body of 50-year-old Jill Clark of Tarentum was found shortly after 7 a.m. Saturday near a utility road in Plum Borough.

Police said she had apparently been beaten to death. An autopsy is scheduled to determine the cause and manner of death.

Fifty-year-old Thomas Clark has been charged with homicide, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. A number listed for the couple had been disconnected and it was unclear whether he had an attorney.

Authorities said earlier that Clark was being sought after she hadn’t shown up for work after an argument with her husband.
