Man faces multiple charges in Trevor domestic violence incident

A man still in the hospital —  if he survives — faces multiple charges regarding a domestic violence incident in Trevor early this morning.

A statement from the Sheriff’s Department says deputies responded at about 5:18 a.m. to the 11300 block of 270th Avenue for a woman who had been battered by her ex-boyfriend. Upon deputies arrival they were unable to locate the victim, but found the suspect, had hung himself in the garage of the home. Deputies cut the subject down and began life saving measures utilizing an Automatic Electronic Defribulator from the squad car. The suspect survives in critical condition at Froedtert Medical Center and is under law enforcement guard.

The victim was later located hiding in bushes in the area too afraid to reveal herself even after deputies had been on scene for some time. The victim is from Trevor and had lived with the suspect until last month. The victim did sustain non-life threatening injuries due to the incident. The victim has an 18-month-old child in common with the suspect. The child was not injured or involved in the conflict.

An investigation is still ongoing, however, preliminary reports indicate that the victim was battered and strangled during the altercation. The suspect also threw a brick through the window of the home before going to the garage to hang himself. There was initially some questions about the use of an axe during the battery, however, investigation revealed that was not part of the circumstances, said Sgt. Bill Beth, Sheriff’s Department spokesman.

Yesterday, US Marshalls were at the residence looking for the suspect in order to satisfy a parole absconder warrant through Michigan. US Marshalls were not able to locate him at that time.

The suspect also has warrants through Kenosha County for Battery/Domestic Violence, Operating without a valid Driver’s License and Possession of THC.

Should he recover from his injuries, the suspect will face these warrants, as well as, new charges of Strangulation, Battery, and Criminal Damage, said Beth. Other charges are possible depending on what the investigation reveals.
