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.
