KALISPELL, Montana — The sister of a Kalispell woman who went missing in February 2013 and is presumed dead says the arrest of a suspect in the case is a step in the right direction, but said the family is still suffering because they don't know what happened to her.
Cody Wayne Johnston of Fairview was arrested Monday and charged Tuesday with deliberate homicide in the presumed death of 31-year-old Nicole Waller. Johnson and Waller had been involved in a turbulent relationship at the time of her disappearance.
Waller's sister, Carmen Keibler, tells the Flathead Beacon (http://bit.ly/1MVf6kH ) that if her sister's body is found the family will be able to move forward with the grieving process.
Johnston hasn't entered a plea. His arraignment is scheduled for Sept. 9.
