DETROIT (AP) — Prosecutors in Detroit have received a request for charges in the case of a slain woman whose two children are missing.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says early Thursday the warrant request hasn't been processed.

Detroit police said Wednesday that Alicia Fox's husband was released after being interviewed Tuesday by FBI agents in Atlanta. Jail records in Georgia, however, list a man with his name as being arrested Wednesday.

FBI Detroit spokesman David Porter said in an email he couldn't immediately discuss the case. A news conference is expected Thursday. The Associated Press sent a message seeking information from police.

Fox's decomposed body, shot twice in the head, was discovered Monday night in a vacant Detroit house. Authorities are searching for her children, 6-year-old Kaylah Hunter and 8-month-old Kristian Justice.
