Not guilty plea made in Deb Dewey case

Posted by wlpo on November 29, 2016

A court appearance Tuesday didn’t lead to any new charges against the man accused of trying to hide Deb Dewey’s body but a jury trial date did come out of it.

Sixty-six-year-old Clifford Andersen of Standard waived his right to a speedy trial and agreed to a May 8th jury trial date.  Andersen pled not guilty to concealment of a homicidal death.  According to an indictment, he buried Dewey on or about September 8th at a property along Route 71 in Standard knowing that she had been killed.

The concealment charge brings the possibility of two to five years in prison but it’s also a crime that’s probation eligible.  Andersen needs $75,000 to post bond.  He’s being held in the Peoria County Jail due to health issues according to Judd Mennie

Andersen was using a walker to get around inside the courtroom.
