Court: Jeremy Wand's plea not coerced
MADISON - Jeremy L. Wand was not coerced into pleading guilty to setting fire to his brother's house in a grisly blaze that killed his three young nephews and the fetus his sister-in-law was carrying, an appeals court ruled Thursday. The District IV Court of Appeals denied granting the former Argyle man a hearing to prove he should be able to withdraw his pleas. Claims by Wand's appeals attorney, George Tauscheck, lacked sufficient facts that would entitle him to withdraw his pleas and go to trial, the opinion stated.
