APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - A man accused of killing his mother in the Fox Valley is scheduled to go on trial today.
35-year-old Randal Rosenthal of Brillion is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the slaying of 52-year-old Kathleen Remter of Forest Junction.
Authorities said Rosenthal shot his mother, and dumped her body in the Fox River – where she was found in July of last year near Kaukauna.
Investigators said DNA tests turned up blood on jeans the defendant wore that day. But in May, the defense said it was trying to show that somebody else could have killed Remter.
A defense lawyer said the woman had told people she felt she was being stalked.
The trial is scheduled to last all week in Outagamie County Circuit Court.
