Bergold Bound Over for Trial
12/12/2019- The Marinette County woman accused of hiding her mother’s dead body in a storage container for months has been bound over for trial. 60-year-old Paula Bergold is being charged with hiding a corpse, failure to report a death, and obstructing an officer and waived her preliminary hearing in court Wednesday. She was arrested in September for allegedly placing the body of Ruby Bergold in a container in the basement of a Town of Peshtigo home and then continuing to collect her deceased mother’s income for as long as four months. Paula Bergold told law enforcement she discovered her mother dead in the home but couldn’t bring herself to report it to police. She’s now set to be arraigned January 6th.
