WISCONSIN RAPIDS - The attorneys for a 55-year-old Wisconsin Rapids man accused of killing his daughter's ex-boyfriend have rested their case after two days of witness testimony.
Joseph Reinwand is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the 2008 shooting death of 35-year-old Dale Meister. Reinwand decided not the take the stand Wednesday in his own defense.
Court documents show Meister had previously told several people that he was afraid Reinwand would try to kill him. Meister and Reinwand's daughter, Jolynn, were in the midst of a custody dispute over their child.
Daily Tribune Media (http://wrtnews.co/13kbqEX ) reports Reinwand's sister, Darlene Reinwand-Lemay, was called to the stand Wednesday morning to testify about an argument she witnessed between Meister and Jolynn Reinwand. Mesiter's neighbor, Christian Trejo, also testified about activity he witnessed at the victim's house several days before he was found dead.
After closing arguments on Thursday, Reinwand's fate will be up to the jury.
