MADISON, Wis. (WSAW) - The man charged with killing a University of Wisconsin-Madison student and Marshfield native in 2008 stood mute Monday at his arraignment hearing. David Kahl, 54, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 21-year-old Brittany Zimmermann.

The court entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

Zimmermann was stabbed to death on April 2, 2008, in her apartment in Madison.

Charges were filed against Kahl in March 2020. His competency had been at issue, initially stalling the case. A clerical court appearance is scheduled for November.
