UPDATE: Husband arrested for stabbing wife to death in Park FallsSubmitted: 08/23/2013
Story By Lex Gray and Hayley Tenpas

PARK FALLS - Neighbors in Park Falls told us a husband stabbed his wife last night.

This afternoon, police confirmed Dawn Rambo WAS stabbed to death, and they do believe her husband did it.

James Kolanowski is a neighbor. He watched the police investigation from his front window.

"And I'm like looking outside, here we got AK-47's pointing at the house and all you hear is "get down on the ground" and they were running over there and they got him on the ground, I don't know if he came out the back door, or what he did. But, they got him," says Kolanowski.

It happened around 5:30 last night. Police found Dawn Rambo with multiple stab wounds. They took her to Flambeau Hospital, where she later died.

Last night police arrested her husband, William Rambo.

It never happens here, and pretty much I wouldn't say it shouldn't have escalated to this point, but they did have family problems, they were always arguing and stuff. I knew that for a fact because my son was friends with them," says ," says Kolanowski.

Court records tell a very similar story. Rambo had been charged with domestic abuse earlier on the day his wife was stabbed.

But still...Kolanowski can't believe this happened here.

"All I can say is that it's a big shock to the community, I mean, everybody was outside looking. Obviously, something like that happens up here, that don't happen every day," says Kolanowski.

The Price County District Attorney is expected to charge Rambo with first degree murder on Monday. For now, he's being held on $500,000 dollars bond.
