Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — An agronomist says much of southern Wisconsin's corn crop could be lost unless the region gets a significant amount of rain in the next week. Landmark Services Cooperative agronomist Joe Speich says the lack of rain has shut down the field corn's pollination process in the critical 10 days after it tassels. If the plant doesn't pollinate, there will be no ears of corn.

RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) — Police are asking for the public's help in finding a laptop computer believed to belong to a man charged with killing his three daughters in River Falls. The laptop is a Sony VAIO in a Targus computer bag. A statement from the city says Aaron Schaffhausen may have disposed of them before he turned himself in Tuesday afternoon.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin's top election official says Republican legislative leaders should stop spreading unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud. Government Accountability Board director Kevin Kennedy made the comments in a letter dated yesterday in response to one sent earlier in the week by Republican state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald and five other GOP leaders.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Officials say DNA from Asian carp has been discovered in water samples collected from Lake Erie nearly a year ago. It's the first time DNA from bighead and silver carp has turned up in Lake Erie. Three bighead carp were caught there between 1995 and 2000.
