Man Accused of Hiding Deb Dewey’s Body Given Stronger Charge at First Court Appearance

Posted by wlpo on September 15, 2016

A Standard man arrived at his first court appearance today to learn he’d be facing a more serious charge than previously thought.

Sixty-six year old Clifford Andersen found out he’s being charged with concealment of a homicidal death, a Class 3 Felony. If convicted, he would face between 2 and 5 years in prison, which could jump to between 5 and 10 years if he’s eligible for an extended sentence.

During the appearance, Judge Michael McCusky outlined some of the findings of the investigation. According to the NewsTribune, Andersen is accused of taking the body of Deb Dewey, wrapping it up using a blanket, tarp, and duct tape, and burying it in a shallow grave.

Andersen remains in custody on $750,000 bond. He’s due back in court October 13th.
