Husband accused of killing wife faces judge


PHILLIPS (WAOW) - A Park Falls man accused of killing his estranged wife remained in jail Tuesday on $500,000 cash bond after making his initial court appearance.

William Rambo, 46, requested a preliminary hearing on one count of first-degree intentional homicide in the Aug. 22 death of 37-year-old Dawn Rambo, according to Price County online court records.

No date was immediately set for the hearing for prosecutors to present enough evidence to justify the charge.

A criminal complaint said Rambo became angry and frustrated with his estranged wife because she wouldn't provide him a temporary place to live so he slashed and repeatedly stabbed her.

She suffered eight stab or cut wounds on her face and neck, the complaint said.

"I got nothing to hide. I did what I did. It is what it is," Rambo told investigators, according to the complaint. "I'm worse than Jodi Arias."

Arias was convicted of murder in the June 2008 death of her ex-boyfriend in Arizona. He died of multiple stab wounds, a slit throat and a gunshot to the head. Arias was convicted in May in a trial that received widespread media attention.

On the day Mrs. Rambo was killed, court documents were filed accusing her husband of battery of her just days earlier, authorities said. He was not to have contact with her without prior written consent, according to court records.
