WOOD COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A Marshfield man made his initial court appearance Monday in the stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend.
21-year-old Gabriel Campos is charged in Wood County with first-degree intentional homicide in the slaying of 18-year-old Maisie McCullough at their east side Marshfield home on September 7th.
The defendant appeared on a video hook-up from jail. But security was still tight in the courtroom, as spectators had to go through metal detectors.
A preliminary hearing is set for November 12th, when a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.
Police said McCullough had just broken up with Campos – and she was about to stay with friends when she returned to the house for a curling iron on the night of the killing.
Campos turned himself in the next day, while he and his young son were at a motel in Wisconsin Rapids. Campos remains in the Wood County Jail under a $5 million cash bond.
