Not guilty pleas entered for man accused in body-burning case


JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Not guilty pleas were entered for the Rock County man accused of burning the body of a teenager from Fitchburg.

Court records show Nathan Middleton stood mute during his arraignment Tuesday, so a judge entered the pleas for him.

Prosecutors say Middleton met 18-year-old Aprina Paul in October through a Craigslist ad. The criminal complaint says Middleton told investigators the two did drugs and had sex, and he found her dead the next morning. After that, authorities say Middleton burned Paul's body in the backyard of his home in Evansville.

Middleton faces two felonies related to the burning of Paul's body, plus a third felony after plotting to escape while jailed on those charges.

Court records show Middleton is due back in court in March.
