Alan Bushey's plea hearing is set for Tuesday in Juneau County Circuit Court. He's expected to enter pleas to charges that include causing mental harm to a child, hiding a corpse and theft.
Prosecutors say Bushey and his follower, Tammy Lewis, kept the decaying body of 90-year-old Magdeline Alvina Middlesworth on Lewis' toilet. Middlesworth was another member of their group. District Attorney Scott Southworth has described the sect as a cult.
A criminal complaint says Bushey told Lewis that God would bring Middlesworth back to life. Prosecutors believe they both wanted to go on collecting Middlesworth's Social Security.
I wonder if people walked by the bathroom, and said " Good God, who died in there"?
