STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) - A Stevens Point man will spend about a-year-and-half in prison, for cooking up a plot to kill his estranged wife.
51-year-old Rocky Neuman was sentenced today in Portage County Circuit Court. He pleaded no contest to hiding a corpse. Charges of attempted homicide and stalking were dropped in a plea deal. Prosecutors said Neuman told his roommate about a plan to strangle his wife and bury her body.
The roommate recorded a conversation about the plot – and Neuman was arrested soon after that. His prison time is being reduced by 406 days he had spent in jail while his case was going through the court system. Neuman must also spend four years under extended supervision once he leaves prison.
