A Nashville man, who police said fled to Egypt with his two children, has been charged with criminal homicide in the death of his wife.


Investigators said the body of Madiha Roshdy, 27, was found last month by a highway mowing crew near Elizabethtown, Kentucky, but authorities were unable to identify her until this week.


Police said she was not reported missing until June 20th, after a friend learned that family in Egypt was worried about her.


Police believe Roshdy was killed at the couple's Nashville apartment and that her body was then dumped near Interstate 65.


Police say Roshdy's husband, Alaa Youssef, 39, left Nashville with their children on June 7th.  He arrived in Cairo, Egypt, on June 8th.


Police have begun preliminary discussions with the U.S. Justice Department about the international issues presented by the case.
