ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — A man accused of killing two brothers from Wisconsin made his first in-person court appearance in Missouri.

Garland Joseph Nelson did not speak during Thursday’s hearing. A preliminary hearing date was set for March 24.  

Nelson, of Braymer, is accused of killing 35-year-old Nick Diemel and 24-year-old Justin Diemel, 24, of Shawano County, Wisconsin. A probable cause statement says the brothers visited Nelson to collect a $250,000 debt. Their remains were found in Missouri and Nebraska.

The brothers were reported missing July 21 after they failed to show up for a flight home.
