JANESVILLE (AP) -- A southern Wisconsin man accused of burning the body of a missing Fitchburg woman in his backyard fire pit is due back in court Jan. 7 after he waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
Nathan Middleton, of Evansville, also waived his preliminary hearing Monday in the case involving allegations he asked his mother to blow a hole in a Rock County Jail wall so he could escape.
According to the complaint, Middleton said he found 18-year-old Aprina Paul dead in his bed Oct. 28 after having sex and doing drugs with her the previous night.
The complaint says they met after Paul responded to Middleton's ad on Craigslist.
Assistant Public Defender Kelly Mattingly withdrew last week, citing a conflict of interest. Middleton's new attorney is Steven Zaleski.
