Man accused of murdering Wausau woman back in court

Posted:

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW)--The man accused in the brutal murder of a Wausau woman heads back to court. Prosecutors say 23-year-old Raul Ponce-Rocha killed Breanna Schneller in May of 2009.

Due to pre-trial publicity, the judge ruled that a jury from La Crosse County will be brought to hear the trial, set to begin in January.

Ponce-Rocha told the court he no longer needs to use a Spanish interpreter. The judge approved that request.

Next week the judge is expected to rule on what evidence the jurors will hear.
