A Merrill man has now been charged with death of wife in Lincoln County Court.
Mark Bucki appeared in court yesterday afternoon, 1 day after the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office confirmed human remains found near Medford were those of Anita Bucki.
According to court records, Mark Bucki will be charged with 3 felonies. Those are 1st degree intentional homicide, hiding a corpse, and strangulation.
The criminal complaint indicates 7 stab wounds and markings on the body consistent with attempts at strangulation. Officials did collect evidence from the home, along with a vehicle.
Anita Bucki was not living at the Merrill residence at the time, and the couple were believed to be discussing divorce.
Mark Bucki is being held in the Lincoln County Jail on $2 million bond. He has a scheduling conference set for May 23.
