From KTIV-TV, Sioux City, Iowa:
The trial of a woman accused of concealing the body of her dead husband in a Madison, Neb., campground is being delayed for a mental evaluation. Jeanne Fry, 64, is accused of keeping the body of her husband Jack in a camper the two shared at the Madison City Campground for months without reporting it. Fry pleaded not guilty to charges of unlawful discarding of human remains in February. In court Monday morning (March 26), the defense filed a motion to have an evaluation ordered for Fry.
The Madison County District Court judge ruled that Fry's trial will be delayed until after the mental health evaluation is completed.
