KINGSTON, MO (KCTV/AP) -- A Missouri farmer charged with tampering with a truck used by two missing Wisconsin brothers still remains in jail without bond.
Garland Nelson appeared in court Thursday morning and has a public defender. A preliminary hearing has been set for Sept. 16.
Nelson is charged with tampering with a rental truck used by 35-year-old Nicholas Diemel and his 24-year-old brother, Justin, who were reported missing July 21 and are presumed dead.
He is accused of driving the truck from a farm near Braymer visited by the brothers during a business trip for their cattle operation in Wisconsin. The truck was found abandoned July 22.
Law enforcement officials announced human remains were found on the farm but haven't been identified.
