Eve Nance, 37, allegedly shot Tim Nance in the head. Officials say she then wrapped his body in plastic, and dumped it in a wooded area in Milwaukee.
Nance was in court Friday for a scheduling conference. A plea and sentencing hearing was set for June 17, but if a deal isn't reached, a July 14 trial date is on the calendar.
She is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse. If convicted of that homicide charge, it carries a mandatory life prison term.
