CACTUS CITY, Calif. - On the very day the family of Julia Jacobson holds a memorial service for her at Spirit of Life Church in Mandan, comes word that searchers in Cactus City, Calif., have found a woman's body and that of a dog in a shallow grave.

Jacobson, a retired Army captain and North Dakota native, was last seen Sept. 2 in southern California, and her dog disappeared as well.

Authorities arrested her ex-husband Dalen Ware in Arizona last month on suspicion of murder.
