A cash bond of $1 million has been set for a Necedah, Wis., woman accused of killing her boyfriend and trying to hide his body from police. 

Crystal Pharis appeared in Juneau County court on Tuesday on seven criminal counts, including 1st degree murder and neglecting a child. 

Pharis is suspected of murdering Jason Dailey at their home earlier this month. 

When a sheriff’s deputy came to the house last week after Dailey was reported missing, Pharis said that Jason had left on his own. 

The deputy left, but returned a short time later to find Pharis unconscious after allegedly taking pills. 

She and her two-month-old baby were both taken to a hospital, but the baby was not hurt. 

Dailey’s body was found next to a bed, and was covered with blankets and pillows.   

Pharis has been ordered not to have unsupervised contact with the baby.
