MAUSTON, Wis. (WSAU) -- The new trial for a man accused of killing two people, including a Wisconsin Rapids woman has been delayed by a third death.
Tabitha Nealy of Wisconsin Rapids and Joshua Alderman of La Crosse were killed in 2007 in what police believe was an altercation about distributing illegal drugs. 38-year-old David Turner of Tomah is already in prison for admitting he killed Alderman.
John Tetting, Jr. was originally convicted in the double homicide, but that conviction was thrown. Tetting is accused of driving Turner to meet Alderman and Neely. Turner told police that Tetting had no knowledge the murders would take place.
Tetting was slated to begin a new trial in Juneau County Wednesday. The special prosecutor was to be Monroe County District Attorney Dan Cary, but Cary died last week. Now, the case needs a new prosecutor.
