EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A trial date has been set for an Eau Claire County man charged with hiding a corpse.

55-year-old Roger Minck remains held on a 10-thousand-dollar cash bond. A 5-day jury trial is scheduled to begin September 13.

Minck is charged in the 2018 overdose death of Toby Cleasby of Gilmanton.

Cleasby was reported missing that November. The search for Cleasby became community-wide, as volunteers searched along the Chippewa River, where Toby’s car was discovered.

His body was found a month later in Minck’s duplex on Seymour Road in Eau Claire County.

A complaint filed in the case says Cleasby went to Minck’s house to pay for drugs. Cleasby’s body was in a green tarp when it was discovered by law enforcement.
