A settlement was announced in a civil case filed by the family of two Wisconsin brothers murdered in Missouri last summer.
The case, filed in northwest Missouri’s Caldwell County by the family of Nick and Justin Diemel against Tomme Sue Feil, Garland Joseph Nelson and J4S Farms, resulted in a settlement of $4 million for the plaintiffs.
In addition to the monetary judgement, the Court ordered the plaintiffs are to collect that amount and disburse the funds as provided in the settlement including paying out the costs, expenses or attorney fees.
In issuing the judgment the court said “the settlement is fair and reasonable under the circumstances and the settlement and distribution of the proceeds in fair and reasonable and settlement is in the best interests of the minor children plaintiffs.”
Nelson has been held without bond since July 19 of last year and is charged with two counts of first-degree murder along with several other charges related to the brothers’ deaths. The State of Missouri is seeking the death penalty in the case. Nelson entered a not guilty plea at a hearing earlier this month.
