FDL Woman Appeals Case To U.S. Supreme Court

The 58-year-old Fond du Lac woman who helped her son dispose of the body of a woman he killed in January of 2009 is appealing to the United State Supreme Court for a new trial. The Wisconsin Supreme Court in July denied Nancy Pinno’s appeal. They ruled 4 to 3 that her 6th Amendment right to a public trial was not violated. Pinno’s son Brandon Mueller strangled 28-year-old Renee Redmer of Waukesha in Pinno’s Fond du Lac apartment. Later they took the body out to Donald Worth’s property on Kinker Road where it was burned and the ashes were scattered under the ice of Lake Winnebago. In December of 2009 Pinno was sentenced to more than 8 years in prison on mutilating a corpse and obstruction charges. The U.S. Supreme Court only hears a small percentage of cases it’s petitioned to hear. Mueller was sentenced to life in prison. Worth was sentenced to six years in prison for his role in disposing of Redmer’s body.
