OCONTO, WI (WTAQ) - A rural Shawano man has been ordered to stand trial for allegedly killing a woman and her brother in Oconto County.
29-year-old Daniel Schmidt is scheduled to enter pleas October 26th to two counts of first-degree intentional homicide.
He’s accused of shooting and killing 32-year-old Kimberly Rose and 21-year-old Leonard Marsh in May of 2009 at the home they shared near Gillett.
At a preliminary hearing, witnesses testified Rose loaned Schmidt $1,000 for a motorcycle – and then she had to pressure him to pay it back.
Rose’s teenage son testified that she and Schmidt often argued about marijuana.
Prosecutors said Schmidt began to have an affair with Rose – but he and his wife later agreed to try and fix their marriage.
Schmidt is being held under a $2 million bond. The state Justice Department is prosecuting the case.
