MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Up to three people could be charged in the death of a Dane County man who had autism.
27-year-old Matthew Graville of Mazomanie was missing since June. Tuesday, Sheriff Dave Mahoney said Graville was abused and tortured by his step-brother – who then killed him, placed his body in a freezer, and then buried him near Mazomanie last July.
28-year-old Jeffrey Vogelsberg is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse. He and Graville lived together last summer.
Their landlord has been arrested for helping hide the victim’s remains. And Graville’s step-mother is also under arrest for allegedly conspiring to hide the body, taking money from his bank accounts, and using his food stamps after he died.
She and the landlord have not been charged. Vogelsberg later moved to the Lewis-McChord military base in Washington State, where his wife is serving in the Army. He was taken into custody after a warrant was issued.
