UPDATE: Cause of Death Determined on Cheboygan County Found Body

A medical examiner did an autopsy on the body found in Cheboygan County and says the victim was strangled.

Police believe the victim is Kimberly Dejohn but are still awaiting DNA results for confirmation.

Dejohn went missing in may following a fight with her husband at their home in Warren.

Following a tip from the Macomb County Jail, police found her body Wednesday near an abandoned home in Afton.

Kimberly’s husband, Loyd, was in jail for the domestic incident. Police say he admitted she hit her head during the fight.

Loyd Dejong was in court yesterday for assault.

Warren police say they’re working with the prosecutor to increase criminal charges.
