Nelson Attorneys Asking For Two Charges to be Dismissed

Attorneys for the Braymer man accused of killing two Wisconsin brothers are trying to convince the court to dismiss two of the charges he faces.

Garland Nelson of Braymer could get the death penalty if he is found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder. His attorneys are asking the judge to dismiss two counts of abandoning a corpse.

Prosecutors say Nelson killed 35-year-old Nicholas Diemel and 24-year-old Justin Diemel of Shawano County, Wisconsin in July of 2019, then burned their remains and dumped them in locations in Missouri and Nebraska.

Nelson’s case is on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
