MADISON, Wis. -

A military police officer has been brought back to Wisconsin to face charges that she helped her husband hide his half-brother's corpse.

Shannon L. Remus, 26, is charged in Wisconsin's Dane County with being party to the crime of hiding a corpse. She appeared in Washington's Pierce County Superior Court on Wednesday, where deputy clerk Melissa Engler said Remus opted not to fight extradition.

She arrived in Madison late Thursday night and was booked into the Dane County Jail.

Detectives said she denied involvement in the death of 27-year-old Matthew Graville last summer, but interviews and court testimony confirmed she knew about the death and where Graville was buried.

A message left with Remus's temporary public defender, Kerry Glasoe-Grant, was not immediately returned.

Remus was arrested at the Lewis-McChord military base Tuesday. She's a U.S. Army police officer with the rank of private.

Her husband, Jeffery Vogelsberg, 28, formerly of Mazomanie, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse. Prosecutors said Vogelsberg tortured and eventually killed Graville in Wisconsin last summer. Dane County prosecutors said Remus helped organize the burial.

Graville's body was not found until early November. Graville had Asperger's syndrome, an autism-spectrum disorder.

Authorities arrested Vogelsberg in Washington state and he was taken to Wisconsin in December.

Vogelsberg's mother, Laura Robar of Fort Atkinson, was sentenced this week for using a Quest card belonging to Graville within weeks of his death to buy groceries. Robar wasn't related to Graville but helped with financial affairs.
