ST. PAUL, MN (WTAQ) - A former Wausau area woman has been missing for five days in Minnesota’s Twin Cities, and her husband is under arrest for suspicion of homicide.
30-year-old Kira Steger Trevino of St. Paul was reported missing last Friday after she failed to show up for her job as a clothing store manager at Bloomington’s Mall of America.
Her car was found Saturday in a mall parking ramp which she does not normally use – and her purse and cell phone were found in the vehicle.
St. Paul Police searched the couple’s home and found enough evidence to suggest that a crime was committed there. And that led to the arrest of 37-year-old Jeffrey Trevino.
Police are not saying yet what the evidence is, since the case remains under investigation. Investigators also said a roommate of the Trevinos is cooperating with authorities.
Kira Steger Trevino is a 2001 graduate of Schofield DC Everest High School.
Friends and relatives have started a Facebook page to gather information – and St. Paul Police are asking the public for tips that would help nail down their case.
