An Indianapolis man has been charged with murder in the 2012 shooting death of his wife whose body was found along a White River State Park walking path near the city's downtown.

State police say 53-year-old Eugene Bingham Jr. was arrested after a nearly 20-month investigation into the December 2012 death of 51-year-old Sherese Bingham. She was found shot about 6:30 p.m. with her two dogs protecting her body on the trail that's along the edge of the IUPUI campus.

Eugene Bingham was being held Wednesday at the Marion County Jail. Court records don't yet list a defense attorney for him.
