WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) – The 66-year-old woman convicted in her husband’s cold-case homicide is asking for a new attorney.
Cindy Schulz-Juedes made the request today in front of Marathon County Court Judge Michael Moran. That attorney, Earl Gray, also requested to be removed from Schulz-Juedes’s case.
A hearing on the motion is set for Feb. 9.
In October, a jury found Schulz-Juedes guilty in the 2006 homicide of her husband, Ken Juedes, at their town of Hull home. Law enforcement said on the night of Aug. 29, 2006, Schulz-Juedes shot and killed her husband. The case went unsolved for years, until charges were filed against her in December of 2019.
Schulz-Juedes blamed Juedes’s death on five men; one of those men, Brian Demler, had claimed he was the get-away driver the night of the shooting. However, he later said he made that up in an attempt to get out of a drunk driving charge, and that he was actually in Green Bay at the time.
Prosecutors said Schulz-Juedes killed her husband to cash in on his life insurance money.
Schulz-Juedes could serve the rest of her life in prison. Her sentencing is set for March 16.
