$1 million bond in Peshtigo homicide
PESHTIGO, Wis. (AP) – Bond of $1 million cash has been set for a Peshtigo man charged with fatally stabbing his girlfriend, who was an advocate for victims of domestic violence.
A judge in Marinette County set the bond Thursday for 48-year-old Brent Kaempf. He’s charged in the death of 45-year-old Patricia Waschbisch. She was found dead in her Peshtigo home Sunday night.
According to the criminal complaint, friends told authorities that Waschbisch said she was going to break up with Kaempf and that he was stalking her at a bar.
Police found Kaempf sleeping in his car in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa early Monday and arrested.
Kaempf is due back in court May 10.
