FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) - A man is charged in Fond du Lac County with hiding the body of his brother in a barrel at their home and failing to report his death.

A criminal complaint says 45-year-old Robert Diamentis told police he had been caring for his brother who was bedridden with a rare immune system disorder. Diamentis says his brother died Feb. 14 at their Town of Ripon home. The complaint says he told investigators he hid the body in the 50-gallon barrel because his brother had sores on his body and he was afraid he would be accused of mistreating him.

Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney says the investigation is ongoing and the autopsy has not been completed. WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1cqSIQB ) says a judge set bond at $50,000 cash during a video court appearance Wednesday.
