GOSHEN — An Elkhart man facing a murder charge in the 2015 disappearance of his uncle has accepted a court-appointed attorney until he can hire his own lawyer.

Charles David Bussard, 30, is accused of killing Byron Bussard on Jan. 22, 2015. He allegedly told investigators this year that he shot the 45-year-old Bristol man, who has been considered missing since February 2015, and made the body “unrecoverable.”
