Bond has been set at $300,000 cash for a Fond du Lac woman accused of murdering her husband and dumping his body in a wooded area.

37-year-old Eve Nance made her first court appearance Wednesday morning on charges of first degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse. Police announced Tuesday that Nance was being charged after the body of her husband, 37-year-old Timothy Nance, was found in a wooded area near Milwaukee on Thanksgiving Day.

According to the criminal complaint, Eve Nance admitted to police that she shot and killed her husband November 1, during an argument at their home. An autopsy found he had been shot twice in the head.

Rodney Emerson, a friend of the victim, was among those who packed the courtroom for the hearing. Emerson says it “was a like court divided,” with people sitting in the room who were supporting Eve and Timothy. He says the couple’s daughter, Tamika, has lost her father and her mother is jailed, and people from both sides of the family have to come together for her.

A preliminary hearing in the case has been set for December 12th.
