Deadly fight started during argument about girlfriend Submitted: 06/29/2015
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.

MILWAUKEE - Opponents are raising concerns about a proposed hog ``megafarm'' in northern Wisconsin.

An Iowa business plans to produce thousands of pigs annually a few miles from Ashland and the shore of Chequamegon Bay.

But plans for the Bayfield County farm are coming under fire from some residents who fear that millions of gallons of hog manure will eventually wash off the land and pollute Lake Superior.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1NohAoP ) reports the $17.7 million farm would be the largest hog farm in Wisconsin.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says it will review the project because of the size of the farm and concerns raised by Wisconsin American Indian tribes.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is expected to announce this week whether to require a lengthy environmental-impact statement.
