UPDATE: Marshfield man charged with murder


The suspect at the center of a Marshfield murder investigation was charged with First Degree Intentional Homicide Domestic Abuse Monday.

20-year-old Garbiel Luis Campos appeared in Wood County Court by video from the Wood County jail 9:00 a.m. on October 15.

Attorneys refused to comment on the case.

According to court documents, Campos broke up with the woman he's accused of killing.

Campos is being held in Wood County jail on a $5 million bond.

On September 10, a judge found probable cause that first degree intentional homicide was committed.

According to a probable cause document, it was Campos' mother, Michelle Lang, that found the body of 18-year-old Maisie McCullough on east Blodgett Street in Marshfield. The document says Lang came home from a meeting to find McCullough in a bathtub.

Police were able to identify the body by a tattoo, with help from Lang according to the document.

The document details that Lang tried to reach Campos but he didn't answer, which was out of character according to Lang. Lang said Campos has few connections to the area and does not have a job.

According to Lang, McCullough was living at the house from 2009 until recently, when she ended her relationship with Campos and moved out.

Court records say there was a crumpled note on the floor when McCullough's body was found, from a man named Gary. The note said he was interested in starting a relationship with McCullough.

The court document says several bloody shoe prints belonging to one person were also found at the scene.

Authorities say McCullough and Campos have a 2-year-old child together. Officials say they were able to contact Campos' father, who had spoken to his son Friday afternoon. Campos told his father that he wished McCullough had an abortion and that his life has never been worse.

After McCullough's body was found, a missing child alert was sent out. Officials say they had reason to believe the child would have been with her.

Early Saturday morning Campos called Wisconsin Rapids police to turn himself in. Officials say the child was with him, unharmed and is now with family members.

When police arrived the document says Campos' shoes had a consistent pattern as the prints that were found. There was also dried blood on a few articles of his clothes.

Later on Saturday records show Campos asked to call his mother. In the conversation he said, "I'm really sorry it had to happen like that mother. I didn't want it to."

The Wood County deputy coroner says McCullough's throat was slit and she was stabbed in the back. Court documents say she also had cuts on her left hand, that were consistent with someone defending themselves.

Campos is scheduled to be back in court November 12 at 3:00 p.m. .
