Trial For Murdered WI Brothers Delayed

The family of two murdered Shawano brothers will have to wait another year to see if they get justice. 

A judge on Monday pushed back Joey Nelson’s trial for the murders of Nicholas and Justin Diemel until next March.  Nelson’s lawyers say he needs a mental evaluation before trial.  The trial was supposed to start in June.  Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in the case. 

They say Nelson killed the brothers over a bad cattle deal, then burned or dismembered their bodies and tried to hide their deaths.
