Halderson case moves closer to possible trial

MADISON, Wis. — Chandler Halderson, the Windsor man charged with killing his father, has been bound over for trial.

Dane County court officials during a Wednesday afternoon hearing accepted Halderson’s waiver of a preliminary hearing and ruled there’s enough evidence for the case to move forward. Halderson is facing four charges, including first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse, hiding a corpse and providing false information about a missing persons investigation.

He was initially arrested in early July for allegedly lying to law enforcement about his parents whereabouts in relation to a missing persons investigation. Authorities later filed charges against him after they found his father’s dismembered remains on a Cottage Grove property.

Law enforcement are still searching for Halderson’s mother, Krista, who hasn’t been seen since July 1. Last week, authorities said they were searching a pond near the Halderson’s home and a landfill near Johnson Creek for evidence related to their investigation.

Halderson’s arraignment is scheduled for Aug. 13.
