GREEN BAY - Authorities released more details about the fatal shooting in Kewaunee County.

38-year-old Luis Cardona pulled 40-year-old Babette Caraballo into his vehicle as she was arriving to work at Hansen Foods. Cardona's vehicle was later located by law enforcement and a swat team was called in.

Sheriff Matt Joski said Cardona shot Caraballo, and then a deputy fatally shot Cardona.


Caraballo is hospitalized with life-threatening injuries. Her CEO says they're praying for her.

"Very dedicated, very reliable individual, cares about her job," Caraballo's boss Michael Fechter told the media. "For us as an organization we are certainly wishing and praying for a safe return. That's first and foremost out of anything else."

Cardona was jailed back in October for taking Caraballo from her place of employment. He was later released on bond under the condition to have no contact with her.
The division of criminal investigation is looking into Tuesday's shooting.


Sheriff's officials say a man who abducted his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint in Green Bay has been killed by law enforcement in Kewaunee County after he shot the woman.

Sheriff Matt Joski says 38-year-old Luis Cardona was fatally shot by authorities Tuesday after he shot his ex-girlfriend, Babette Caraballo, near an ATV park in Kewaunee County. She has been rushed to a Green Bay hospital. Her condition was not immediately known.

WLUK-TV reports officials say Cardona pulled Caraballo into his vehicle as she was arriving for work shortly before 5 a.m. Tuesday at Hansen's Frozen Foods in Green Bay.

Cardona's vehicle was later located by law enforcement in Kewaunee County through a cellphone inside the vehicle. A SWAT team was called to the scene.

Joski says the state Department of Justice is investigating.

The Sno-Eagles Snowmobile Club maintains more than 80 miles of trails near Eagle River. Heavy snow brought down hundreds of trees. It also insulated lakes and swamps, slowing down the freezing process.

Trail Boss Brian Scheid said only about half the fallen trees have been cleared. He also said a lot of the trails are too wet.

RHINELANDER - A handful of elementary school students in Oneida County got the motivation they needed Thursday to learn formal letter writing. When drafting messages to Santa, those students received help from future business professionals.

Volunteers from Rhinelander High School's FBLA/DECA club visited Pelican Elementary Thursday. They helped 1st grade students compose their letters and assisted with proper spelling and grammar.

"I'm impressed, they really do a lot, they know a lot, they know how to write and their spelling is really, really close," said 11th grade student and FBLA/DECA club member Lily Eternicka.

1st grade teacher Ann Edwards says the letter writing activity was a fun break but also a great teaching tool.

"It was great to see them apply what I'm telling them every day to use when I'm not holding their hand to do an activity," said Edwards. "Instead of just asking the high schoolers how to spell a word they were really trying to stretch out the sounds."

FBLA/DECA club members will visit a couple dozen classrooms this week and next to volunteer with students. In two weeks, members will deliver responses from Santa back to the students.
