Harris remains jailed with a bond of $1 million.
Overland Park police said that Harris called them to the couple’s apartment in the 8000 block of Perry Street on Monday and reported his wife missing.
But police said he later allegedly admitted to having something to do with her disappearance.
Tanisha Harris, 38, was found dead Tuesday in Cass County.
Available court records do not list a cause of death or motive for the killing, and police and prosecutors said they could not discuss details of the case.
