    A 23-year-old Wisconsin man will face multiple charges in connection with the death of his father, whose dismembered body was found last Thursday in a rural area, as well as the disappearance of his still-missing mother, say authorities. Last Wednesday, Chandler Halderson, of Windsor, called the Dane County Sheriff's Office to report that his father, Bart Halderson, 50, and mother, Krista Halderson, 53, had vanished from their home on Oak Springs Circle on July 1, according to a probable cause statement filed with the court. The next day, police found a human torso in Cottage Grove, where Chandler had allegedly been seen driving his vehicle in reverse "with the rear hatch open in a field near a wooded area". On Monday, authorities said they believe Chandler shot and dismembered his father before dumping his remains in a wooded area of Cottage Grove. Police allege he then lied to police, saying his parents had vanished after going away for the Fourth of July weekend, the Wisconsin State Journal reports. Last Thursday, Chandler was arrested on a tentative felony charge of providing false information in a missing person investigation, the Dane County Sheriff's Office said in a release. He is being held at the Dane County Jail on a $10,000 bond. His attorney did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment. On Monday, he was charged with three new tentative felony counts – mutilating a corpse, hiding a corpse, and intentional first-degree homicide, online jail records show. At Halderson's bond hearing on Monday, Deputy District Attorney William Brown said formal charges are expected to be filed on Thursday, the Wisconsin State Journal and NBC 15 report.
