A Fairfield man has been indicted by the Somerset County grand jury on a charge he murdered his wife, according to the Somerset County District Attorney’s Office.

Luc Tieman, 33, is charged with the intentional or knowing murder of his wife, Valerie Tieman. He was indicted Friday.

Valerie Tieman, 34, was reported missing in early September by her parents, who live in South Carolina, after they had not heard from her for more than two weeks. Her husband did not report her missing. He initially told police she disappeared from his pickup truck outside Wal-Mart in Skowhegan.

He later said she died of a heroin overdose.

In interviews with the Morning Sentinel, friends said that Luc Tieman was unfaithful to Valerie and sought companionship with other women, telling them his marriage was ending around the time she disappeared.

Court documents revealed that she died of two gunshot wounds to the head and was found buried in the backyard of her husband’s parents’ house in Fairfield. She is believed to have died Aug.25.

Luc Tieman did not enter a plea last month during an initial court appearance in Somerset County Superior Court. He is being held without bail at the Somerset County Jail.
