Twenty-eight-year-old Jeffrey Vogelsberg is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse. The sheriff said the 27-year-old Graville lived with his stepbrother in Mazomanie before Vogelsberg moved to Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington with his wife, who's in the Army.

The State Journal (http://tinyurl.com/d2thve3 ) says sheriff's officials are also holding a relative who's accused of stealing from Graville's bank accounts. A third person is suspected of helping Vogelsberg hide the victim's body.
