Man pleads not guilty in Wis. half-brother's deathJanuary 31, 2013 @ 1:25 pm
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A former Wisconsin man accused of beating his autistic half-brother to death and then hiding his body has pleaded not guilty.
An attorney for 28-year-old Jeffrey Vogelsberg entered not-guilty pleas on Vogelsberg's behalf Thursday.
Vogelsberg is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse.
Prosecutors have accused Vogelsberg of regularly torturing and finally killing 27-year-old Matthew Graville in Mazomanie (mah-zoh-MAY'-nee) last summer. Graville's body was not found until early November.
Authorities arrested Vogelsberg in Washington state where he had moved to be with his wife, who's stationed at a military base. Authorities returned Vogelsberg to Wisconsin in December.
The Wisconsin State Journal ( http://bit.ly/11l6lZv) reports a defense request to move Vogelsberg's trial out of Dane County will be heard May 6.
