WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A judge denied the request for a New Berlin man to attend the funeral of the wife he's accused of killing. 

James Farris appeared in a Waukesha County courtroom Monday afternoon.

The criminal complaint says the two got into an argument over their disabled daughter's care. 

Farris will be back in court next month.
