A Virginia man accused of killing his wife more than ten years ago and leaving her body in the Greenbrier State Forest appeared in court Tuesday.
Thomas Neal Tait, 52, of Waynesboro, was arraigned in Greenbrier County Magistrate Court. Tait is charged with first degree murder in the death of Karen Tait, 23. Her body was found in Greenbrier County back in 2002, but she wasn't listed as missing until 2011, and her body was just identified in the fall.
Tait was waiting to be sentenced in Virginia on unrelated child pornography charges when West Virginia authorities charged him with first degree murder. Tait is in Southern Regional Jail. His next court appearance is set for January 30, 2013.
