MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Madison man accused of torturing and killing his disabled half-brother has been ordered to stand trial.
A WISC-TV report says Jeffrey J. Vogelsberg appeared in Dane County court Thursday for a preliminary hearing.
The 28-year-old is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and being party to the crime of hiding a corpse. His bail was previously set at $1 million.
Prosecutors say Vogelsberg regularly tortured Matthew Graville, a 27-year-old autistic man who died in July. The criminal complaint says Vogelsberg beat him and repeatedly shot him with a BB gun.
Graville had Asperger's syndrome, an autism-spectrum disorder. Detectives found his body buried in the woods months after he disappeared.
A message left with public defender Patrick Schilling was not immediately returned.
