A suburban Milwaukee man has been charged in connection with two bodies found in suitcases near Lake Geneva, Wis. earlier this month.

52-year-old Steven Zelich has been charged with two counts of hiding a corpse, according to Walworth County Sheriff’s Office.

Zelich was arrested Wednesday for questioning about the bodies that were found June fifth by highway workers, as they were cutting grass along a road near Lake Geneva.

One of the victims has been identified as 37-year-old Laura Simonson of Farmington, Minnesota.
