Pine River Man Accused of Murder

A 28-year-old Pine River man has been arraigned  for intentional murder.   Dane Joseph Riley was charged  in Cass County District Court with 2nd degree murder and interference with a dead body.

The Cass County Sheriff was contacted about a person missing since July 13th, identified only as MAH.  A subsequent investigation determined that Riley picked up MAH during the early hours of July 14th.  

Deputies say a woman living in Riley's trailer reported she was awakened by the sound of gunshots.  Outside, she observed Riley allegedly standing over a man striking him on the chest. 

Lawmen were alerted to a burn pit located near the residence, in which charred clothing was found.  A further search of the property led officers to two separate areas where the remains of MAH were found.

Riley's bail was set at $1 million.  His next court appearance is set for August 13th at 1 p.m.  Riley had been in the Cass County Jail since July 20th on an unrelated charge.
