MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — An ex-police officer suspected in the deaths of two women whose bodies were found stuffed into suitcases is scheduled to appear Friday in court in Wisconsin.

Steven M. Zelich of West Allis, Wisconsin, is charged with two counts of hiding a corpse.

A criminal complaint says Zelich told investigators he killed one woman in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, and the second in Rochester, Minnesota. He hasn’t yet been charged in their deaths.

Authorities say the 52-year-old Zelich met his victims online, bound and killed them and kept their bodies for months.

A Walworth County public defender said he most likely would represent Zelich but declined to comment.

One victim was Laura Simonson, a Minnesota mother of seven. Authorities have not released the identity of the second woman.
