MADISON, Wisconsin — The Dane County trial of a man accused of killing his autistic half-brother remains on hold while the defendant undergoes medical tests.

Thirty-year-old Jeffrey Vogelsberg is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the 2012 death of 27-year-old Matthew Granville. Vogelsberg is also accused of burying Granville's body and intimating a witness, his grandfather.

Vogelsberg's trial has been on hold since Thursday when he was taken by ambulance to University Hospital. Authorities said results of a medical test taken earlier showed a potentially serious health concern.

The State Journal (http://bit.ly/1tWyKmM ) reports Judge Julie Genovese said Monday she has not been told details of his medical condition, but that doctors want the defendant to remain in the hospital for further tests.
