GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A Green Bay man is charged with fatally stabbing his live-in girlfriend.
A criminal complaint filed in Brown County says 31-year-old Richard Gardipee stabbed Wendy Garcia with a kitchen knife at their home Saturday afternoon after the couple physically fought over Gardipee's use of pain killers.
Authorities say a friend of Gardipee called police after Gardipee showed up at his house with blood on his clothes and said he had hurt his girlfriend. The complaint says Gardipee told investigators he dragged his girlfriend's body to the basement so her 4-year-old son wouldn't discover her.
WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/M2qole ) says Gardipee's bond was set at $500,000 cash Thursday afternoon. He's scheduled to return to court July 18th.
