Two people facing homicide charges in area counties are scheduled to have court hearings on Wednesday.
In Jackson County, Star Myers of Black River Falls may be formally charged with shooting her husband, Richard Bork, in her bedroom last March.
Myers and four other people, including her son, are accused of conspiring to hide Bork’s body. Investigators found the victim’s remains outside the Myers house several days after Bork was reported missing.
Also on Wednesday, a brief status hearing is planned in La Crosse for a teenager accused of killing a young girl, reportedly his niece.
The 16-year-old suspect has not been officially charged yet with homicide in the girl’s death. He has admitted to striking the victim in the face, apparently causing her to fall and hit her head.
