A man from Missouri pleads guilty in deaths of 2 Wisconsin brothers
(AP) — A man from Missouri has pleaded guilty to killing two brothers from Wisconsin in 2019.
Garland Nelson, of Braymer, admitted in court Friday that he killed 24-year-old Justin Diemel and 35-year-old Nicholas Diemel, of Shawano County, Wisconsin, after they came to his farm to collect a debt from a cattle contract.
In exchange for his plea to two counts of first-degree murder, several other charges, including abandonment of a corpse, were dropped.
Prosecutors said Nelson killed the Diemels in July 2019, burned their bodies and dumped their remains on a manure pile.
He was supposed to be raising and selling cattle for the brothers, who came to the farm to collect a $250,000 debt.
