A Des Moines developer plagued by financial problems is being held in the Marion County Jail.

John Kline turned himself in Sunday on contempt of court charges.

A judge ruled last month Kline must pay his ex-wife more than $180,000 or spend 30 days in jail.

Kline is also awaiting trial on bank and wire fraud charges, stemming from business transactions between 2004 and 2006. He faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine if found guilty on two charges of bank fraud and seven counts of wire fraud.
