A doctor has been indicted for the murder of his wife whose body was found in an outdoor area not far from the couple’s home.

Ingolf Tuerk, 58, of Dover, Massachusetts, was indicted on Thursday, Aug. 20, and is being charged in the murder of 45-year-old Kathleen McLean, the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office said.

Tuerk will be arraigned next week, the DA said. He is being held without bail.

McLean’s remains were discovered, *May 16, by police. 

Trouble between the couple became public in March when McLean called the Dover-Sherborn Press to talk about her fear of Tuerk and how the system was not doing enough about her protection, the MetroWest Daily News reported. In February - about three months before McLean went missing - Tuerk was arraigned in Dedham District Court on a charge of violating a restraining order. He said he was not guilty. And the pre-trial conference was postponed. 

*Correction: The article previously misstated the date on which police found McLean.
