Hearing Set for Portage Man Accused in Halloween Homicide Case


The Portage man charged for allegedly murdering another man in the town of Lebanon is set to plead his case to a judge later this month. 

20-year old Nigel Schultz faces a Count of First Degree Intentional Homicide in the death of Bradlee Gerke of Beaver Dam, whose body was found in a shallow grave on Halloween. Schultz was identified as the suspect by his girlfriend, who is the daughter of the property owner where the body was found. 

Investigators reportedly found burned grass with spots of blood and part of a skull. Gerke was shot ten times in the back of the head and six times in the chest. Schultz initially denied shooting him, but reportedly admitted to pulling the trigger later in the investigation. 

His preliminary hearing is set for December 20th
