- Jealousy could explain why a former Iraq war veteran shot his wife, Wauwatosa Police Officer Jennifer Sebena, earlier this week.
The criminal complaint issued today tells us 30-year-old Benjamin Sebena admitted to police he shot and killed his wife early Christmas Eve morning.
Police found Sebena's body outside the city's fire department around 4:30 a.m.
She was shot five times in the head with two different guns.
A search of the Sebena's home found both her standard issue handgun and a 9mm gun stashed in the attic.
Benjamin Sebena told investigators yesterday he had been stalking his wife for several days.
He also told them he had been jealous of other men in regards to his wife.
Benjamin admitted to waiting for Officer Sebena outside the fire department and shooting her with his gun twice, then shooting her several more times with her gun so that she "wouldn't suffer."
Sebena faces one count of first degree intentional homicide. If found guilty, he faces life in prison.
