A body found in the Mississippi River in St. Paul has been identified as missing D.C. Everest graduate Kira Trevino.
At a news conference Thursday, St. Paul police declared the search for Trevino is over.
The body was found Wednesday afternoon in the river after a citizen reported it, police said. The body was taken to the medical examiner who made the identification. Officials said the body was badly decomposed.
Authorities would not comment on details of the investigation. They said Kira's family has been notified.
Kira Trevino, 30, had been missing since February 21. Her husband, Jeffery Trevino, 39, has been charged with second degree murder. He has maintained his innocence.
Kira Trevino was a 2001 graduate of D.C. Everest High School.
Affidavits filed in the second-degree murder case against Jeffery Trevino says his mother-in-law, Marcie Steger, told police her daughter's husband was "very controlling" and was trying to monitor her activities by attempting to access her bank and personal accounts.
Jeffery Trevino's trial is scheduled to begin later this month.
