FOND DU LAC - It was a packed courtroom for Eve Nance's initial appearance.  Her family members tell us, we haven't heard the whole story.

"This doesn't add up, and it doesn't make sense," said Eve Nance's aunt, Cherie Holstein.  She admits the whole family is in shock, and can't believe the allegations.
 
"I hope we find evidence to prove my niece is innocent," Holstein said.
 
It was standing room only in court where Nance's bail was set at $300,000.
 
"There's a systematic and methodical disposal of evidence in this case," said Fond du Lac County District Attorney, Eric Toney.
 
Nance admitted to police she shot her husband, then dumped his body in Milwaukee.  She tossed evidence, including the gun, along Highway 41.  On Wednesday, State Patrol officers searched up and down Highway 41 for more evidence.
 
Inside court, friends and family disagree what happened, but outside, they have the same concern.
 
"Tim is not the only victim here.  He does have a daughter.  She's got to be going through a very difficult time right now.  You lost your mom, you lost your dad," said Rodney Emerson, Timothy Nance's friend.
