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.
Chance of a shower or T-storm Sunday, otherwise the weekend forecast is looking good.
