WAUSAU - Wausau police say a fight over a woman left one man dead and sent another to jail.
Forty-year-old Jerry Schnabl was charged Monday in Marathon County with first-degree reckless injury and aggravated battery. Cash bond was set at $250,000.
Investigators say 43-year-old George Diver was injured after fighting with Schnabl overnight Friday at an apartment. Witnesses say Diver did not seek medical attention and went to bed in the apartment after the fight. A 33-year-old woman who lives with Diver in the apartment discovered him dead about 1 p.m. Saturday.
Witnesses told police the fight did not involve any weapons and that the two were fighting over a mutual girlfriend both wanted to date.
An autopsy Sunday did not reveal a cause of death.

Some of Doctor Greg Michals' life experiences led him to make the decision to become a chiropractor.
"There was these car accidents that I got involved with in high school," Michals said. "It was three of them I got in senior year. Usually I tell people I wasn't driving; I had a poor taste in friends."
WISCONSIN - A court can require drivers convicted of multiple drunk driving offenses to install an ignition interlock device, or IID, in their cars. The drivers then must blow into the IID to check their blood alcohol level in order for their cars to start. Some drivers, of course, don't want to pay to have the device installed, but a proposed new law may increase fines for people who fail to install it.
