KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — A former police officer suspected in the deaths of two women whose bodies were found stuffed in suitcases along a rural Wisconsin road returns to court to face more charges.

Jonathan Smith is the attorney for 52-year-old Steven Zelich. He says Zelich is due in court Tuesday in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, for an initial appearance. Smith says he doesn't know what the charges will be.

Zelich has been charged with hiding a corpse in Walworth County, Wisconsin, where the bodies were found in June.

Walworth County officials said previously that one woman, 19-year-old Jenny Gamez of Cottage Grove, Oregon, died in Kenosha County and they expected homicide charges to be filed there.

Investigators have said the other woman died in Minnesota. No charges have been filed there.
