In the grave, police also found a box of SweeTarts, a potato chip bag, a knit hat and a shirt. Underneath her body they found a bottle of the Gucci cologne, “Guilty.”

Tieman maintains his innocence and intends to appeal, his lawyer told CentralMaine.com.

However, Tieman admitted in court that he lied about his wife vanishing at Walmart. CentralMaine.com reports. He had also told police she had died from a heroin overdose, which he also admitted was a lie, according to the outlet.
