Charges have now been filed against 24-year-old man accused of killing his girlfriend during an argument.
According to the criminal complaint obtained by WLUK-TV, Kevin Lombard told investigators he and his girlfriend, 18-year-old Amelia Schmitz, stopped at a New London hotel on August 12 on the way to his grandparents’ home in Eagle River.
While in the hotel, Lombard told Schmitz he had slept with his child’s mother as well as another ex-girlfriend. Schmitz became upset and, Lombard said, began screaming and scratching him. Lombard said he tried to quiet her and restrain her by putting her in a headlock. They then fell off the bed and she became limp. Lombard said he called his mother twice, then called 911.
He's facing charges of 1st-degree reckless homicide and strangulation and suffocation. He'll make his first court appearance September 27.
He's currently in custody in the Waupaca jail on a probation hold.
