MADISON, Wis. — A Marshall woman is also facing charges in the death of a Sun Prairie man whose body was found in a storage facility after days of searching .
The Dane County Sheriff’s Office said 51-year-old Meichelle M. Goss was arrested Wednesday on a tentative charge of hiding a corpse.
Officials said Goss is engaged to Daniel C. Lieske, the man charged with the homicide of 21-year-old Jesse Faber. Authorities said Goss was in the adjacent property when Lieske shot Faber five times.
“The co-defendant did see our victim at least three times prior to our victims death, twice before he was likely injured and at least one time after and at no time is it indicated that anyone rendered aid or called for help for our victim,” Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne said in court.
Faber had been reported missing after a party in a duplex in the town of Medina. The suspects sister said the party took place at the duplex next to Lieske’s and that his adult children live there.

Goss is being held in the Dane County Jail, the sheriff’s office said.
Lieske has been in Dane County Jail since his arrest on Thursday, officials said.
