A man arrested in a case involving a buried body will soon come to trial.

Robert Alvarado is charged with helping cover up the murder of his son's wife.

He is charged with tampering or fabricating physical evidence.

Police arrested him after the body of his daughter in law, Danielle Hill Alvarado was found.

Danielle went missing in January, 2010.

On October 19th, 2012, Danielle's body was found buried at Burnett Park.

Arrest records show Alvarado told police his son Jonathan stabbed Danielle and the two of them hid the body for two days, before burying it in Burnett Park off FM 368.

Authorities say Jonathan Alvarado committed suicide in 2011.

According to both prosecutor John Gillespie and defense Attorney Mike Payne jury, selection is set for a week from Monday.
