Stevens Point man sentenced in plot to kill wife

A Stevens Point man accused of plotting to kill his estranged wife and bury her body was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison on Tuesday.

Rocky Neuman, 51, was charged with conspiring to commit first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse, as well as stalking.

Prosecutors said Neuman talked to his roommate about strangling his wife and helping him bury her body. Neuman was arrested after his roommate recorded a conversation about the plan.

Neuman reached a plea deal and pleaded no contest to conspiring to hide a corpse. The two other charges were dismissed, but read in at sentencing. Neuman will receive 406 days credit for time already spent in jail.
