The Minocqua man accused of killing his wife last year heads back to court.

A judge denied  a defense attorney's request  to keep statements 40-year old William Schmidt made out of his jury trial. 

 Investigators say Schmidt killed his wife, Lori and stuffed her body in a closet.  Schmidt hid from police for several days, and was found in his mother's home. During an initial interview, she told police her son admitted to murdering his wife.


If convicted, Schmidt faces life in prison.
