The case of the former Oneida and Forest County medical examiner accused of stealing parts from a body in an autopsy is taking a couple new twists.
Prosecutors say 45-year-old Traci England of Rhinelander took human remains from an autopsy to train her cadaver dog.
She's charged with misconduct in public office.
According to online court records, England stood mute during a court appearance Tuesday, prompting the judge to enter a not guilty plea on her behalf. This is the second time she's actually entered a plea.
Her attorney says he filed a motion to dismiss the original charges because they were too vague and didn't specify how England violated the law. Prosecutors re-filed the information fixing the problems, prompting the second plea.
England's attorney is also seeking a change of venue in the case to either her home county of Oneida or Fond du Lac County where the alleged crime occurred.
He also says he'll be looking into case law, looking for a motion to dismiss it completely.
England is due back in court next month.
