Prosecutor: Man Took Responsibility for Wife's Disappearance

April 1, 2006 - Posted at 12:56 p.m. CST

DANVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ A prosecutor says a Colorado man suspected

of killing his wife and trying to kill the couple's daughter told a

detective in Arkansas he was responsible for his wife's

disappearance and that she is dead.

Frank Schilt is being held in the Yell County jail in Danville.

He was arrested Wednesday while trying to hang himself. Yell County

Prosecutor Tom Tatum says sheriff's detective David Kimball

testified in court yesterday that Schilt told him about his alleged

role in his wife's disappearance.

Denver police say investigators believe 51-year-old Teresa

Schilt was killed February 25th in the Schilts' Denver home and

that her body was dumped in a trash bin. Denver authorities have

issued arrest warrants accusing Schilt of killing his wife and

trying to kill their 15-year-old daughter.
