Neillsville man enters insanity plea in 2002 deaths

SPARTA, Wis. (AP) — A man has been bound over for trial in the 2002 homicides of a couple in Monroe County.

Larry Schaffer, of Neillsville, is charged with two counts each of first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse, all as a party to the crime.

According to a criminal complaint, police arrested the 42-year-old in January after he bragged about killing 34-year-old Connie DeGeorge as her husband, 30-year-old Kale Kvistad Jr., over drugs.

The La Crosse Tribune reported the judge also ordered Schaffer be examined for competency after entering a plea of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect.

His sister, Eunice Hogan, testified Thursday at a preliminary hearing that she saw him sexually assault DeGeorge, before shooting the pair in some woods.

A hunter uncovered their bones in 2004.
