(CALDWELL COUNTY, Mo.) The man accused of tampering with a motor vehicle in connection to the case of two missing Wisconsin brothers pleaded not guilty in court Monday morning.

Garland Nelson entered the not guilty plea during his arraignment in Caldwell County Court. 

Nelson was charged with tampering with a motor vehicle in the first degree after he told authorities he drove the truck being rented by Nick and Justin Diemel to a commuter lot in Holt, according to court documents.

In July, human remains were discovered on a property owned by Nelson. Since then, there has been no information on the identity of those remains.

Tomorrow we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will start to move away from the area on Saturday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s and watch for our next chance for rain on Sunday.
