Newport Beach man charged with wife's murder

Posted: Updated:

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A Newport Beach man has been charged with killing his wife at the couple's mansion, then disposing of her body at an unknown location.

Peter Gregory Chadwick was charged Monday with one count of murder with the special circumstance of murder for financial gain.

He is being held without bail pending an arraignment.

Prosecutors say they believe Chadwick killed his wife, Quee, last week during a dispute over money and a possible divorce.

Her body has not been found but police who visited the couple's home say they saw evidence of a struggle.

A neighbor had contacted police after learning the couple's children had not been picked up at school.

Chadwick, 48, was arrested Thursday after he called police from a location near the Mexican border.
