JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- A Janesville man who's been under investigation ever since he allegedly claimed to have killed three people has been charged in one homicide -- the bludgeoning death of his 21-year-old girlfriend last month.
A court commissioner on Friday set bond for Clayton J. Courtney at $500,000.
Courtney is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the case. He's already charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, stemming from allegations that he stabbed his roommate in the shoulder and foot last month.
Courtney is accused of killing Britney Cross and leaving her body behind a vacant building along the Rock River.
Prosecutors asked for a $1 million cash bond. Defense attorney Joshua Klaff called the amount "absolutely inappropriate" and sought a more modest amount.
