George Burch

George Burch is charged with 1st degree intentional homicide in the May 2016 murder of Nicole Vanderheyden, whose body was found about three miles from her home. The cause of death was severe blunt force trauma to her head and strangulation. Burch’s DNA was found on Vanderheyden, but attorneys want to point the finger at Vanderheyden's boyfriend, Douglass Detrie. Burch says Detrie caught Vanderheyden having sex with him in a car, and killed her, threatening Burch to secrecy with a gun, and making Burch move the body to the ditch where she was found.
