OCONTO, WI (WTAQ) - One of two men accused of being responsible for the 1998 murder of Green Bay man Chad McLean goes on trial starting Tuesday.

Peter Hanson's trial is expected to last almost two weeks.

The other suspect, Charles Mlados, will go on trial February 14.

McLean disappeared near Abrams, and his body was found in the Pensaukee River one month later. Earlier this year, charges were filed following a John Doe investigation.

Hanson's wife Kathy told authorities that same night Hanson came out of the garage and she, "saw blood on Pete's hands," according to the criminal complaint. The complaint also indicates a friend of Hanson's told police Hanson said he and Chuck Mlados took McLean to a shed behind Hanson's home. The friend said, "Hanson admitted to shooting McLean and Mlados loaded the body into a truck." The two then, "took Chad to a bridge and dumped him in the river."
