KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - Steven Zelich is due in court Tuesday in Kenosha, where he's suspected of killing one of two women whose remains were found in suitcases in June.
The Kenosha County district attorney's office confirms that the 52-year-old Zelich will appear Tuesday afternoon -- but they're not saying what the charges will be yet.
Zelich has a new lawyer. A judge allowed Jonathan Smith to replace Travis Schwantes last week.
Zelich, a former West Allis police officer, is charged in Walworth County with two counts of hiding a corpse.
Prosecutors said he killed Jenny Gamez during a sexual encounter in 2012 at a hotel in Kenosha, and Laura Simonson in Rochester Minnesota last November.
Officials said homicide counts would be filed in the counties where the deaths took place. That hasn't happened yet.
