Portage County man avoids trial for plotting to kill wife

Posted:

STEVENS POINT (WAOW)--There will be no trial for the Portage County man accused of plotting to kill his wife. Instead, he is expected to enter a new plea to the charge in April.

Prosecutors tell Newsline 9, 51 year old Rocky Neuman has  reached a plea agreement. Details of the deal haven't been released.  What we do know is Neuman  will avoid a trial on a charge of plotting to commit first degree murder. The charge, carries a 60-penalty.

Investigators say Neuman asked a roommate to dig a grave for his wife because he planned to kill her. The roommate went to police, resulting in Neuman's arrest last June.
