Military officer gets plea deal for helping husband hide body

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A military police officer was given a chance to escape a felony record for helping her husband hide his half-brother's dead body in southern Wisconsin. 

27-year-old Shannon Remus pleaded guilty in Dane County court Wednesday to two reduced charges of misdemeanor obstruction. She struck a plea deal in which a felony count of hiding a corpse will be dropped, if she successfully completes two years of probation. She'll also spend nine months in jail. 

Remus is a police officer at the Lewis-McChord joint military base near Tacoma Washington. Her husband, 29-year-old Jeffrey Vogelsberg, is scheduled to stand trial next month on charges that he beat his autistic half-brother to death last year when the two lived together in Mazomanie. 

27-year-old Matthew Graville was found dead while buried in a wooded area near Lone Rock last November. The two men's landlord, Robert McCumber, allegedly helped bury Graville's body. He's charged with hiding a corpse, and his case is on hold until after Vogelsberg's case is settled. 

A spokesman at the Lewis-McChord base says Remus is still considered to be an active duty soldier there -- but he would not speculate on her future.
