Missing Massachusetts mother Ana Walshe’s husband has been charged with murder three weeks after she went missing on New Year’s Day.

Walshe will appear in court tomorrow on the new murder charge. The evidence used to obtain the murder warrant will likely be presented then.

“The ongoing investigation has now enabled police to obtain an arrest warrant charging Brian Walshe with the murder of his wife.
‘Mr. Walshe is being tried for murder,” Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey said in a video statement today.
Walshe is due in court tomorrow morning. So far he has denied misleading the police in his wife’s disappearance.
Ana was last seen on the morning of January 1st at 1:30am. She and her husband left a New Year’s Eve party.
They returned to her home in Cohasset, Massachusetts, but she was never seen again.
She was due to travel to Washington DC for work the next day, but didn’t show up for her flight or got on her ride to the airport.
Ana was reported missing on January 4 by Tishman Spyer, the real estate company she worked for.

A man posing as the company’s security chief in Washington DC called the Cohasset Police Department to request a welfare check for them.
This man told police he informed Ana’s husband Brian that she was missing.
It contradicted Brian’s attorney’s claim in court that he told her at work that she was missing.
In the weeks leading up to her disappearance, Ana had stopped wearing her wedding ring.
Friends said there was “tension” in the marriage. They are now appealing to the care of their children.
