WARSAW, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana man has been arrested after police said he falsely accused an area officer of killing Holly Bobo who has been missing for two years.

Michael Roy Wiggins was being held Tuesday on $100,000 bond in the Kosciusko County Jail. A jail officer didn't know if the 32-year-old North Webster resident had an attorney.

The Journal Gazette reported that Wiggins was arrested Monday on preliminary charges of obstruction of justice and false informing.

Police said Wiggins sent an email to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation alleging a North Webster officer took his squad car to Tennessee, abducted and killed nursing student Holly Bobo and then buried her body at a farm in northern Indiana in April 2011.

WANE.com reported Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department detectives verified the officer was actually on duty and taking calls on the date indicated by Wiggins. Further investigation revealed that the mileage on his squad car would not take into account a trip to Tennessee.

Police said the officer had recently arrested Wiggins.
