Halloween Murder Suspect Held on $5 Million Cash Bond

The man accused of killing another man and leaving his body in a shallow grave near a Town of Lebanon home on Halloween is being held on a $5-million cash bond. 

21-year old Nigel Schultz of Portage is charged with First Degree Intentional Homicide while 32-year old Rebecca Wolc of Beaver Dam faces charges for Harboring or Aiding a Felon. 

Bradlee Gerke of Beaver Dam was found dead outside of a home alongRedwing Road. The property owner called police – explaining that his daughter identified the suspect as Schultz, who is her boyfriend. Investigators reportedly found burned grass with spots of blood and part of a skull – and found Gerke’s body in a shallow grave. 

Schultz initially claimed that Wolc shot Gerke before allegedly confessing to shooting him in the head ten times, and firing six rounds into his chest.

Both Schultz and Wolc are set to appear for preliminary hearings next week.
