Bushey in Court

13 News, Wisconsin/August 3, 2008

A self-styled religious leader accused of encouraging one of his followers to hide a corpse on her toilet for months is due back in court.

Alan Bushey's attorney, Thomas Steinman, has filed a motion to move the case out of Juneau County because of publicity.

A judge is expected to consider the motion at a hearing Tuesday. Prosecutors say Bushey told his follower, Tammy Lewis, to keep 90-year-old Magdeline Alvina Middlesworth's dead body on Lewis' toilet.

Middlesworth was another member of their sect.

According to a criminal complaint, Bushey told Lewis god would bring Middlesworth back to life.

Prosecutors alleged they both wanted to go on collecting Middlesworth's social security.
