Livingston County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating what they're calling a homicide in the town of Hemlock.
Gary Flemke, 61, was arraigned Saturday on a felony charge of Tampering with Physical Evidence.
Deputies say the investigation began Friday night when an out-of-state family member couldn't reach his mother. When deputies couldn't locate her or her husband, Gary Flemke, a missing person report was filed.
Flemke was later found in an establishment in the Village of Dansville. Deputies say they found the woman's body behind their Hemlock home.
"The entire night this investigation was going on, with the deputies investigating until about 2 a.m. and through the night assisted by New York State Police," said Tom Dougherty, Livingston County Sheriff.
Deputies say they are withholding the woman's name until her identity is confirmed.
