ELKHART — An Elkhart man has been arrested for his uncle’s murder after allegedly confessing on the five-year anniversary of the killing in Bristol.

Charles David Bussard, 30, was arrested Thursday and charged with the murder of Byron Bussard in January 2015, Elkhart County Prosecutor Vicki Becker said Friday. Byron Bussard was reported missing in February 2015, but no information on his fate was ever known until Charles Bussard came to police with information in January this year.
