COPY-Soldier gets probation in Wis. homicide case

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a soldier accused of helping her husband hide his half-brother's corpse in the Wisconsin woods to two years' probation.

Shannon Remus, a military police officerat Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state, faced one count of being party to hiding a corpse in the death of Matthew Graville. Prosecutors have charged Remus' husband, Jeffery Vogelsberg, with killing Graville in the rental home they shared in Mazomanie last year.

Remus agreed to plead guilty to two new misdemeanor counts of obstructing police. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to dismiss the hiding a corpse charge if she completes two years of probation.

Dane County Circuit Judge Julie Genovese approved the deal on Wednesday and ordered Remus to begin serving probation.

Vogelsberg's trial is set for October.
