MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) A man suspected of killing and dismembering his wife is being treated for hypothermia and possible frostbite.

He was captured Sunday as he fled on foot through the snow in a wooded area of northern Michigan. Coast Guard helicopters aided in the search.

Stephen Grant had been the subject of a manhunt since police discovered what they believe to be the torso and other body parts of his wife, Tara Grant. Police say the remains were found in the couple's suburban Detroit home and a nearby park.

An arrest warrant was issued Saturday charging Grant with murder, disinterment and mutilation.

A doctor at Northern Michigan Hospital says Grant is in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery.

Tara Grant was last seen February 9th. The Grants have two children.
