A Missouri man is now under federal indictment – for a cattle fraud scheme on top of related murder charges.
27-year-old Garland J. Nelson of Braymer is now under federal charges for fraud for how he treated cattle he was contracted to care for.
Farmers accuse him of maltreatment of their stock- including one who lost 96 and the ones left were emaciated and sick.
Two Wisconsin brothers who paid him are now dead in what federal prosecutors call a cover-up for – allegedly selling, trading, and killing their livestock. Nelson is charged with their murder after they tried to collect their money in person. That murder trial is scheduled for June of 2022
