MADISON, Wis. -

A military police officer accused of helping her husband hide his half-brother's corpse will stand trial.

Shannon L. Remus, 26, was bound over for trial in Dane County Circuit Court on Thursday.

Remus is charged with being party to the crime of hiding a corpse.

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.

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.

Vogelsberg and Remus were arrested in Washington state and extradited to Wisconsin to face charges.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
