MADISON, Wis. —

A former Wisconsin man accused of beating his autistic half-brother to death and then hiding his body has pleaded not guilty.

An attorney for 28-year-old Jeffrey Vogelsberg entered not-guilty pleas on Vogelsberg's behalf Thursday.

Vogelsberg is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse.

Prosecutors have accused Vogelsberg of regularly torturing and finally killing 27-year-old Matthew Graville in Mazomanie (mah-zoh-MAY'-nee) last summer. Graville's body was not found until early November.

Authorities arrested Vogelsberg in Washington state where he had moved to be with his wife, who's stationed at a military base. Authorities returned Vogelsberg to Wisconsin in December.

The Wisconsin State Journal (http://bit.ly/11l6lZv) reports a defense request to move Vogelsberg's trial out of Dane County will be heard May 6.
