AUSTIN -- Austin police have charged the estranged husband of a woman missing since 2010 with first degree murder.

Police say George De La Cruz, 25, was indicted by a Travis County jury for murder relating to the disappearance of Julie Ann Gonzalez, 21.

De La Cruz  was arrested on Friday by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force. His bond has been set at $500,000.

Gonzalez was reported missing on March 27, 2010. De La Cruz has been a person of interest in the case, and evidence was taken from his home via a search warrant in May 2010. Police have said in the past that De La Cruz was not cooperating with their investigation.

De La Cruz has had custody of the couple's four-year-old daughter Layla since Gonzalez's disappearance.
