34-year-old Michael Lowery of Rising Star was held as of Wednesday on $1 million bond. He was arrested Tuesday night in Brown County, TX.
His wife, Amber Lowery, has been missing since July 23. Law enforcement officials on Wednesday did not immediately say what led them to the husband or whether a body has been found.
The Lowerys had previous altercations, including one in West Plains in November 2011, where police records show Michael was arrested and charged with assault for allegedly breaking Amber’s nose during a confrontation at a local motel.
