MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The wife of a Dane County murder suspect pleaded not guilty Thursday to helping hide the victim’s body.
26-year-old military police officer Shannon Remus entered her plea in Dane County Circuit Court, after she was ordered to stand trial on a felony charge of hiding a corpse.
Future court dates were not immediately set.
Remus’ husband, 28-year-old Jeffrey Vogelsberg, is accused beating his autistic half-brother to death last year when the two lived together in Mazomanie.
Prosecutors said their landlord, Robert McCumber, led police to a wooded area near Lone Rock where 27-year-old Matthew Graville was found buried in early November.
According to earlier testimony, Remus helped her husband and McCumber remove Graville’s body from a freezer, where it was stored before being taken to public land for burial.
McCumber has a pre-trial hearing Thursday afternoon on a charge of hiding a corpse.
Vogelsberg is due back in court May 6th for a hearing on pre-trial requests. He’s charged with homicide and hiding a corpse.
