50-year-old Joseph Edward Traeger was arrested this week after he confessed to police that he killed his wife, Jeneen Ann Catanzaro. The last time that Catanzaro was last seen before her disappearance was November 28.
Traeger apparently lied to police and reported Catanzaro missing four days after she disappeared. According to police, who asked him why he didn’t call them earlier, he told them that he didn’t like calling the cops.
Traeger later confessed to the murder, telling police that the two had been arguing in the kitchen, which was when he took a knife and stabbed her once in the back of the head at the base of her skill.
Traeger is now facing murder charges, giving false information to law enforcement officers, fabricating physical evidence, and more.
