TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Court documents show that blood found at Josh Powell's Utah home belonged to his wife, who has been missing since 2009.

The documents were unsealed in connection with a Washington state case against Josh Powell's father, Steven Powell. Steven Powell was arrested last year and charged voyeurism and possession of depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Josh Powell's wife, Susan, vanished from their Utah home in December 2009. He was the only suspect in her presumed murder, but maintained his innocence. He killed himself and his sons in a fiery house blast earlier this year.

Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said Friday that had the Susan Powell case happened in his jurisdiction, he would've charged Josh Powell with her murder.
