Suspect in slaying of wife in Mango remains at large

MANGO — Nearly a week has passed since an arrest warrant was issued for a man accused of killing his wife and burning her body inside a car last month.

But Christopher K. Belcher, 43, of Mango remains at large.

Belcher is wanted on counts of second-degree murder and arson, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office announced Friday.

The body of 43-year-old Gwendolyn Belcher was found inside her burned car in Thonotosassa in September, deputies said.

She was identified through dental records, and the Medical Examiner's Office ruled her death a homicide this month.

Shortly after her body was discovered, sheriff's deputies arrested Christopher Belcher on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. A judge set his bail at $1 million, but he was released when prosecutors decided not to pursue the charge.
