Update: New charges were announced in the case Wednesday. That story is posted here.
The announcement will be made during a news conference held by the county prosecutor and sheriff’s office at 10:30 a.m. in front of the county courthouse in Kingston.
More charges will be filed against Garland Nelson, said Major Mitch Allen of the sheriff’s office.
Nelson has been in custody since July on a charge of tampering with a rental truck used by Nick and Justin Diemel, two brothers who had visited Nelson’s family’s farm on business.
Nelson pleaded not guilty to the charge earlier this month and remains the only person charged in connection with the brothers’ disappearance.
The search for the brothers has been labeled a death investigation.
Human remains were later found on the farm but have not been publicly identified.
More than two hours after GPS information from their rental truck’s black box showed the brothers arrived at the farm, the vehicle left and was later seen on video near a Casey’s General Store in Polo, according to charging documents.
There appeared to be no passenger in the front seat of the truck, a deputy wrote in the records.
The truck was left running. It was found in the commuter lot with the keys in the ignition and the lights on.
He is accused of transferring 35 calves from his mother’s farm in Missouri to a dairy farm in Fort Scott, Kansas, without health papers.
The cows were malnourished and sick when they were dropped off after a failed business deal that left 96 cows dead, according to his former business partner David Foster.
