MADISON, Wis. - A former Wisconsin man accused of beating his half-brother to death and then hiding his body has pleaded not guilty.
An attorney for 28-year-old Jeffrey Vogelsberg entered not-guilty pleas on Vogelsberg's behalf Thursday.
Vogelsberg is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse.
Prosecutors have accused Vogelsberg of regularly torturing and finally killing 27-year-old Matthew Graville in Mazomanie last summer.
Graville's body was not found until early November. Graville had Asperger's syndrome, an autism-spectrum disorder.
Authorities arrested Vogelsberg in Washington state where he had moved to be with his wife, who's stationed at a military base. Authorities returned Vogelsberg to Wisconsin in December.
The Wisconsin State Journal reported a defense request to move Vogelsberg's trial out of Dane County will be heard May 6.
