Search for Kira Trevino's body moves to Mississippi River

Author:

St. Paul police, along with Ramsey and Dakota sheriff's officers, were in boats on the Mississippi River in Dakota County on Thursday as part of the search for Kira Steger Trevino's body, the Pioneer Press reports.

Investigators are following leads that led them to the river near the Wakota Bridge, St. Paul police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos told the newspaper.

The last official law-enforcement search for Trevino's body was March 27 on Keller Lake in Maplewood, Paulos told the Pioneer Press.

Volunteers have been doing their own weekend searches, and four more are planned for Saturday and Sunday.

Kira Trevino has been missing since Feb. 21, and prosecutors believe she is dead because a large amount of her blood was found at the home she shared with her husband. Read more in the criminal complaint.

Other evidence in the case includes a bag found near Keller Lake that contained a bloody pillowcase that contained DNA that matched that of the 30-year-old St. Paul woman.

Her husband, Jeffery Trevino, is charged with second-degree murder and has pleaded not guilty. A tentative trial date has been set for May 28.
