MARSHFIELD – The mystery surrounding the murder of a Marshfield native may be solved.
Criminal charges were filed on March 20 in connection with the murder of UW-Madison student Brittany Zimmermann.
Authorities have charged David A. Kahl, 53, in Dane County Circuit Court with first-degree intentional homicide, as party to a crime and by use of a dangerous weapon.
Brittany’s killing took place on April 2, 2008, in her downtown Madison apartment. The 21-year-old Marshfield native attended UW-Madison majoring in medical microbiology and immunology.
She lived with her fiancé Jordan Gonnering and their three cats in the 500 block of West Doty Street. Zimmermann’s killing “shook the Madison community and devastated her family, friends and hometown,” police said in a statement sent out on March 20.
