A Moraine man is scheduled to appear in court today after being indicted on criminal charges following human remains of what authorities said is a missing Middletown woman being discovered behind his home.

Gilbert Todd Revere, 57, was indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury last week on two counts of tampering with evidence, one count of gross abuse of a corpse, and one count of failure to report knowledge of a death, court records show.

Authorities said the remains of Michelle Burgan, 47, missing from Middletown, were discovered behind Revere’s home on Hemple Road earlier this month, according to investigators.

Charges filed in Kettering Municipal Court are dated back to May 16, 2017, the day Burgan was reported missing in Middletown.

In Kettering court, Revere’s bond was set at $250,000 and a not guilty plea was entered, court records show.

Revere remains booked in the Montgomery County Jail, records show.
