3 Wiota residents killed with fire poker after man breaks into farmhouse


WIOTA, WI (WTAQ) - A criminal complaint says Jared Kuester used a fireplace poker to kill three Wiota residents last week after breaking into their farmhouse.

The 31-year-old faces three charges of first-degree intentional homicide and one count each of burglary and operating a vehicle without consent.

Authorities say he took off his clothes after abandoning his car, then ran naked through some woods to the home where Gary and Chloe Thoreson lived.

The third victim, Gary Thoreson's brother Dean, was visiting at the time of the attacks.

Court papers say Kuester has a history of mental-health issues.
