Former Marine accused of killing girlfriend in Panama

The disappearance of 42-year-old Yvonne Baldelli took a twist on Thursday when her boyfriend was accused of murdering her, then concocting an elaborate cover-up. He allegedly sent fake emails from her account, telling her family that she was having a great time, and he withdrew money from her bank account.

Brian Brimage, a 37-year-old former Marine, pleaded not guilty to charges of obstruction of justice and making a false statement to a federal officer.

Our hearts go out to Yvonne’s family during this difficult time.
