Husband accused of killing wife 30 years agoSubmitted: 08/18/2014
Story By Associated Press


PORTAGE COUNTY - 30 years after the death of a woman in Portage County, prosecutors charge her husband with killing her.

Pamela Reinwand died of a gunshot wound to the head at her Plover home in May 1984. Her husband, Joseph Reinwand, told deputies then that she committed suicide over an argument after a night at a bar.

Joseph Reinwand was charged Thursday with first-degree murder. He's due for his initial appearance on the new charge Tuesday.

He's already due to stand trial October 20th on a separate charge in Wood County. That's for the 2008 shooting death of 35-year-old Dale Meister, of Wisconsin Rapids.

Evidence in that case led authorities to revisit the wife's death.

Reinwand is already in prison on unrelated burglary charges.
