MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)--- The case involving the death of a Sun Prairie man is now in the hands of the jury.

Closing arguments ended at 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday for the Daniel Lieske case. The jury was still deliberating and did not reach a decision Tuesday night.

The jury will reconvene on Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m.

60-year-old Daniel Lieske pleaded not guilty to 1st degree intentional homicide charge in the death of Jesse Faber.

Authorities said Lieske shot Faber during a fight inside Lieske's home in January 2018. Lieske then hid Faber's body in a storage unit in Rio.

Lieske pleaded guilty on Jan. 2 to hiding the body of Faber.

Meichelle Goss, Lieske's girlfriend, pleaded guilty in December 2018 to hiding a corpse.

"All of a sudden I was getting calls from all kinds of friends. At about 7:30 that night we started looking for Jesse down around the area, just ditches, creeks anywhere if he would have wandered off. But with the fresh snow you could see tracks along the road and there was never nothing," Faber's dad told NBC15.
