MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A military police officer in Washington State will not fight efforts to bring her to Wisconsin to face a criminal charge connected with her husband’s murder case.
26-year-old Army private Shannon Remus – the wife of Jeffrey Vogelsburg – was charged in Dane County this week with being a party to hiding a corpse. She waived extradition Wednesday during a court hearing in Pierce County Washington, and her first Dane County court appearance has not been scheduled.
Vogelsburg has pleaded not guilty to killing his autistic half-brother, 27-year-old Matthew Graville, and burying him in a five-foot grave near Lone Rock.
Prosecutors said Vogelsburg had his wife inspect the burial site to see if anything suspicious was exposed. Authorities found the body last November.
Vogelsburg is charged with homicide and hiding a corpse. A court hearing is set for early May on his request to move his possible trial out of Dane County due to heavy publicity.
Robert McCumber, who owned the house in Mazomanie where Vogelsburg and Graville lived, is also charged with hiding a corpse. He’s due back in court a week from Thursday.
On Monday, Vogelsburg’s mother was sentenced to a year in jail after pleading no contest to identity theft. Laura Robar was convicted of using Graville’s food assistance card after he died to buy groceries.
