MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU-Wheeler News) - A Merrill area man has been ordered to stand trial on charges that he killed his wife, and dumped her remains in the woods near Medford.

49-year-old Mark Bucki was bound over for an arraignment today, during a preliminary hearing in Lincoln County Circuit Court. The defense wanted to reduce Bucki’s two-million-dollar bond, but the judge said no. The next hearing in the case is set for August 29th, when a trial date could be scheduled. Authorities said Bucki and his 48-year-old wife Anita were discussing a divorce just before he reported her missing in late April. Her remains were found in mid-May about 20 miles from the couple’s home.

An autopsy showed that Anita was stabbed seven times, and had severe bruises around her throat. It was not immediately determined when Bucki will enter pleas to his three felony charges – first-degree intentional homicide, hiding a corpse, and strangulation-and-suffocation.
