A Camp Pendleton Marine being investigated in the disappearance of the wife of another Marine is scheduled to be arraigned on a separate weapons charge.

San Diego Superior Court spokeswoman Karen Dalton says Louis Ray Perez will be charged Wednesday afternoon in Vista, Calif.

Sheriff's Department officials say the 45-year-old Perez was the last person seen with Brittany Dawn Killgore. Investigators found a body in neighboring Riverside County on Tuesday but its identity has not been confirmed.

Perez was arrested Sunday for possessing a stolen AR-15 rifle. The Marine Corps does not have AR-15 rifles and the source of the weapon is unclear.

He's jailed on $500,000 bail.
