The former landlord of a woman missing since 2006 in Texas surrendered to authorities Wednesday after being indicted for her murder, according to the Llano County Sheriff's Office.
Jimmy Wolfenbarger, 57, of Lubbock was indicted on May 3 on one count of murder in the death of Holly Simmons, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).

The best charcoal for grilling
Not all charcoal is created equal. According to food experts, these are the best charcoal options for grilling.As temperatures start to rise, many people are dusting off their patio furniture and getting ready for grill season. And now that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it’s safe to gather outside in small groups without a mask (so long as you’re fully vaccinated), you can safely invite friends and family over for a barbecue and enjoy good food and great company. However, before you can host the ultimate BBQ, you need to know how to make the most of your grill.
Following Simmons' disappearance, her house was examined for evidence and neighbors, coworkers and associates were interviewed by investigators. The Llano County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Rangers worked this case for years but she was not found, the statement added.
Finally, in 2009, a recreational diver found a submerged aluminum boat at the bottom of a lake near Simmons' home, the statement says. Her body was discovered at the bottom of the boat with concrete bags placed over her. The Texas Department of Public Safety Dive Team and the Llano County Sheriff's Office jointly recovered the boat and Simmons' remains, according to the statement.
The Travis County Medical Examiner's Office identified Simmons from dental records and ruled the death a homicide, according to the Llano County Sheriff's Office release.
In 2016, the Texas Rangers Unsolved Crimes Investigation Program began reviewing the case and named Wolfenbarger as a suspect following a five-year investigation, according to the DPS.
At the time of the alleged murder, Wolfenbarger was Simmons' landlord and lived near her home in an RV park.
Wolfenbarger turned himself in to the Lubbock County Jail on Wednesday and was released after posting $2 million bond, according to the sheriff's office. He has been ordered to surrender his passport, the sheriff's office said. CNN has been unable to confirm whether Wolfenbarger has an attorney.
