(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.
