A second man from Oconto Falls has been charged with homicide in a 15-year-old murder case. Prosecutors allege Charles J. Mlados, 54, was present at the shooting of a Green Bay man and helped to hide the body.
Mlados is charged with one count of intentional homicide — party to the crime in the death of Chad J. McLean, a 19-year-old who went missing Feb. 22, 1998. His body was found March 22, 1998, in the Pensaukee River near a bridge by Sandalwood Golf Course in Abrams. According to autopsy reports, McLean died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head.
Also accused of the homicide is Peter J. Hanson, 52, of Oconto Falls, who in April pleaded not guilty. He goes to trial in December.
According to an amended criminal complaint, McLean was last seen at a home in Abrams, where he was drinking beer with friends when Mlados and Hanson arrived. McLean, who wanted a ride to Green Bay, reportedly left with Hanson and Mlados.
