MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Bond was set at $1 million Wednesday for a Dane County man charged with killing his autistic half-brother.

28-year-old Jeffrey Vogelsberg made his initial court appearance on charges of first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse. His next appearance is set for next Thursday, when a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.

Authorities said Vogelsberg beat 27-year-old Matthew Graville to death last June 30th at a rented house they shared in Mazomanie.

Graville’s body was found buried in a wooded area near Lone Rock several months later. He had Asperger’s syndrome, an autistic-related disorder.

Vogelsberg was arrested at a military base in Washington state, where his wife works. He fought extradition, and Washington’s governor had to sign an order to ship him back to Wisconsin to face his charges.
