12-16-13 nance bound over for trial
A Fond du lac woman charged in the death of her husband has been bound over for trial. Probable was found at a preliminary hearing Friday for Eve Nance on charges of first degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse. Testimony wrapped up Friday morning after the hearing was adjourned Thursday afternoon after the defense asked for copies of the autopsy report. Nance is charged in the shooting death of her husband Timothy Nance at their 10th Street residence in Fond du Lac. Judge Gary Sharp is considering a request by the District Attorney to increase cash bail to a million dollars. Police detective Bill Ledger testified that Nance told him her husband threatened her with a gun and during a struggle the gun discharged twice. Ledger says Eve Nance then said she carried her husband’s body to her car, and drove to Milwaukee where she dumped the body in a wooded area at the end of a dead end street. Police believe Nance killed her husband because he was having an affair and planned to get a divorce.
