LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A grand jury found enough evidence to send Epifanio Guzman to trial for murder on Tuesday.

Police believe he killed his wife, Rachel Guzman, here in Lubbock at the end of May and then took her body to Big Spring.

Police in Big Spring found her body on June 4.

Epifanio was arrested that same day, on a charge of indecency with a child.

Police say Epifanio admitted to strangling Rachel during an argument.

He told police he wrapped her in a sleeping bag and took her body to Big Spring.

He remains behind bars in Lubbock County as of Tuesday night.
