EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — A Fall Creek man is accused of killing his sister and her boyfriend last month and burying their bodies at his residence.

The couple was apparently shot in the woman's vehicle a week before the bodies were found, and drugs are believed to be a factor in the shootings, authorities said.

Wayne W. Price, 46, was charged Monday, Oct. 9, in Eau Claire County Court with two felony counts each of first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse, and a felony count of second-degree recklessly endangering safety.

Judge Shaughnessy Murphy set a $1 million cash bail for Price, who returns to court Tuesday, Oct. 17, for a preliminary hearing.

As conditions of bail, Price cannot possess weapons or leave Eau Claire County.

Authorities say Elizabeth "Lisa" A. Price, 43, of Fall Creek. and David R. Dishneau were the victims in the shootings.

According to the criminal complaint:

The shootings were believed to occur around Sept. 23.

Price was taken into custody Sept. 29 after he confessed to a friend that he got involved in a drug deal and did something "really stupid."

Price told his friend he shot two people and would be going to prison.

The bodies of Lisa Price and Dishneau were found Sept. 29 in a shallow grave on Wayne Price's property.

A silver Cadillac was located in a wooded area off of a trail. Blood was on both front seats and blood spatter was on the windshield of the driver's side.

An autopsy conducted Oct. 2 showed Lisa Price was shot once in the head. She also had an injury on the top of her head that was consistent with blunt force trauma.

Dishneau was shot twice in the head and once in the neck.
