MILWAUKEE (AP) -- More charges are coming in the case of a former police officer accused of hiding two bodies in suitcases left along a rural Wisconsin highway.

The attorney for Steven Zelich says he is due in court Tuesday afternoon in Kenosha County.

Attorney Jonathan Smith says Zelich is scheduled for an initial appearance, where his client will learn the charges against him. Smith says he doesn't know yet what those charges are.

The 52-year-old Zelich has been charged with hiding a corpse in Walworth County, where the bodies were found in early June.

Walworth County officials said previously that one woman, 19-year-old Jenny Gamez, of Cottage Grove, Oregon, died in Kenosha County and they expected to see homicide charges filed there.
