SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The search for Lori Hacking at the Salt Lake County landfill will resume tonight.

The 27-year-old has been missing since July 19th. Police believe her husband Mark Hacking shot her to death while she was sleeping, then disposed of her body, the gun, and the mattress. He's in jail charged with murder.

The search was supposed to begin again last night, but the search dogs were not available. Police say they will return to the landfill tonight and will likely search through the weekend, though it will depend on the availability of the dogs.

Police say searchers are almost two-thirds of the way through the 46-hundred tons of garbage that was cordoned off in the landfill the day after the woman disappeared.
