WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) - An Oconomowoc (oh-KAHN’-ah-mah-walk) woman has pleaded not guilty to charges she fatally shot her husband and hid his body.

Amy Van Wagner pleaded not guilty Monday to first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse, both felonies. The judge denied a defense request to modify Van Wagner’s bail, and she remains jailed on $100,000 bond.

Van Wagner was arrested last month in the death of her husband, Stanley Van Wagner. His body was found in the basement of their home in May 2015. A criminal complaint says two shell casings were found in a first-floor office, along with blood and a hole in the wall. Investigators believe Van Wagner was killed upstairs and his body moved to the basement.

Amy Van Wagner is due back in court April 22.
