54-year-old Steven Zelich faces one count of first degree intentional homicide and one count of hiding a corpse out of Kenosha County.

His trial is expected to last two weeks.

Zelich is also suspected of killing 37-year-old Laura Simonson in Minnesota in 2013.  A judge will allow jurors to hear about Simonson during Zelich’s trial.


The women’s remains were found in suitcases along a highway near Lake Geneva in June of 2014.

Zelich is also charged with two counts of hiding a corpse out of Walworth County, where the suitcases were found.

He has a status conference scheduled for February 12th in that case.
