INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — A Jackson County judge granted prosecutors’ request Wednesday for a delay in the case against two brothers accused of abandoning the corpse of a woman.

Prosecutors wanted the delay because they believe autopsy results will lead to more serious charges filed against Lance Gross and Marlin Gross.

Lance Gross, 52, and Marlin Gross, 49, are charged with abandoning the corpse of 48-year-old Peggy Perez in a Cass County creek. According to Blue Springs Police, Perez died in Lance Gross’ home on January 20th while the couple were having sex.

Prosecutors say that Lance Gross waited for three days before calling his brother in to help wrap Perez’s body in plastic and throw it in a creek.

According to the victim’s sister, Perez met Lance Gross at a VFW bar in Kansas City late last year, and that the two were dating.

Marlin Gross is currently out of jail on bond. Lance Gross is being held on $150,000 bond.

Their next court appearance is March 28.
