Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Even though there's no trial to prepare, no jury to persuade and no judge to hand down a sentence, investigators say they still want to know the full story behind this week's attack at a suburban Milwaukee Sikh temple. Authorities hope to eventually find a motive that might provide answers to devastated families.

OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) -- Hundreds of people gathered in southeastern Wisconsin last night to remember the six Sikh worshippers who were fatally shot at their temple this week. Attendees held candles and prayed for the victims, remembering them as peaceful people dedicated to their families and faith.

IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (AP) -- The body of a rafter was found in the Menominee River yesterday along the Michigan-Wisconsin border. The 59-year-old man was part of a group rafting on Piers Gorge when the raft tipped over yesterday afternoon.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Governor Scott Walker is expected to clear his schedule this morning after his wife was taken to the hospital twice yesterday because of stomach pains. A spokesman says it isn't anything life-threatening, but authorities haven't released details about her condition.
