Vogelsberg faces trial on intimidation charge


MADISON (WKOW) -- A Mazomanie man already facing trial for the murder of a developmentally disabled man will also face trial for what authorities said was the intimidation of a witness.

Jeffrey Vogelsberg was bound over for trial on the felony charge Wednesday. A criminal complaint states Vogelsberg sent a threatening note from jail to the man who reported the disappearance of Matthew Graville, the homicide victim.

Vogelsberg's wife, military police officer Shannon Remus was denied a bail reduction Wednesday.

Remus's bail is $100,000. She's charged with helping to hide Graville's corpse.

Dane County Judge John Markson barred 27 News from videotaping either Vogelsberg or Remus during their court appearances, although Markson allowed videotaping of the court proceeding.

Defense attorneys argued showing Vogelsberg and Remus in jail clothes and restraints would prejudice potential jurors who might see them in news broadcasts.

Markson ruled the public receives no further information from seeing the defendants in law enforcement custody.

Both Vogelsberg and Remus have appeared in 27 News video during previous court appearances before different judges.
