Chaseburg Murder Suspect Being Held on $250,000 Bond

VIROQUA, WI (Ben Caxton) — The man arrested in connection with a death in rural Chaseburg over the weekend has made his first court appearance. Appearing by a video feed from the Vernon County jail 59-year-old David Stowe reportedly interrupted the judge and had to be told to be quiet by his attorney on several occasions. Although details of what happened at Stowe’s home that led to the shooting death of 75-year-old Stuart Warner aren’t clear, prosecutors comments have shed some light on Stowe’s state-of-mind. They say Stowe admitted to shooting Warner when he called 9-1-1 and said that “demonic” things were going on. Prosecutor Timothy Gaskell told La Crosse media that Stowe previously faced first-degree intentional homicide charges in 1993 in La Crosse. He was found not guilty by reason of insanity. He was given a $250,00 cash bond and continues to be held in the Vernon County jail on first-degree homicide charges.
