KINGSTON, Mo. (AP) — Northwest Missouri authorities say human remains found in Missouri and Nebraska are those of two missing brothers from Wisconsin.

Caldwell County Sheriff Jerry Galloway announced in a news release Friday that remains found Monday in a livestock trailer in Lincoln County, Nebraska, are those of 24-year-old Justin Diemel, and remains recovered from a farm in Caldwell County, Missouri, are those of 35-year-old Nicholas Diemel. The brothers, from Shawano County, Wisconsin, were reported missing July 21.

Galloway said dental remains were used to confirm the identifications.

Garland Nelson, of Braymer, Missouri, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and other charges in the brothers’ deaths.

Court records say the brothers’ father, Jack Diemel, said his two sons were at Nelson’s farm to collect a $250,000 debt when they went missing.
