MADISON, Wis. — Authorities in Wisconsin say a military police officer stationed in Washington state helped her husband hide the body of his half-brother.
Dane County, Wis. sheriff’s officials say Shannon Remus was arrested at Joint Base Lewis-McChord on Tuesday. Remus is a U.S. Army police officer who’s being held in the Pierce County Jail in Tacoma. She faces an extradition hearing Wednesday.
Remus is the wife of Jeffrey Vogelsberg, who’s charged with torturing and killing his autistic half-brother Matthew Graville in Mazomanie last summer.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Remus had an attorney.
Dane County sheriff’s investigators say Remus has denied any involvement in Graville’s murder, but say she knew where he was buried.
Authorities arrested Vogelsberg in Washington state where he had moved to be with his wife.
