SHEBOYGAN (AP) – A Sheboygan teen has pleaded not guilty to killing his father and hiding his body in their apartment.

A Sheboygan County judge has denied a defense request to lower bail for 17-year-old Dorian Torres, who remains in jail on $750,000 cash bond. He’s charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 41-year-old Emilio Torres. An autopsy showed the victim was repeatedly struck in the head with a blunt object.

Police say Torres hid his father’s body in a bed box spring. The body was found wrapped in part of a tent, shower curtain and two blankets last month. Sheboygan Press Media reports the father may have been killed about a week before his body was found.
