SHELBYVILLE, Ind. - A man arrested in connection to a Shelbyville cold case was charged with murder Thursday.
Scott Schuck, 46, was arrested Wednesday on a preliminary charge of voluntary manslaughter in connection to the 2010 case.
Detectives spent hours digging in Schuck’s back yard Tuesday and said they found what appeared to be human remains on the property Wednesday.
Schuck identified himself as the former boyfriend of Rebecca Cassidy. Cassidy was last seen in the area before she went missing four years ago.
Officers with the Shelbyville Police Department said in addition to the remains, they also found a purse buried on the property that contained Cassidy's ID, according to court documents.
Schuck admitted that he and Cassidy had an argument and he struck her, strangled her and buried her in his yard, according to court documents.
When Schuck was interviewed Tuesday, he said this wasn’t the first time that police have searched in and around his home. He said it was the third time in about four years.
Schuck was due back in court in September.
