Family of missing Wisconsin brothers settles lawsuit

KINGSTON, Mo. (AP) — The family of two Wisconsin brothers who were killed in Missouri have settled a wrongful death lawsuit filed against the suspect and his mother.

WDAF-TV reports a Callaway County judge approved a $4 million settlement Monday in a lawsuit filed in the deaths of Nicholas and Justin Diemel of Shawano County, Wisconsin.

The family sued Garland Nelson, his mother, Tomme Feil; and their cattle business. Nelson is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of the brothers and could face the death penalty if he's convicted.
