WOOD COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A new $1 million bond was set Monday for Marshfield murder suspect Gabriel Campos, on a charge that he tried to have a fellow jail inmate kill a man that Campos’s ex-girlfriend was seeing.
The 21-year-old Campos was already charged with homicide in the stabbing death of 18-year-old Maisie McCullough last September.
Monday, he appeared in Wood County Circuit Court on a new charge that he offered an assault rifle, a car, and $4,600 to a jail inmate if he would kill a 24-year-old Junction City man.
All those items were impounded after Campos was arrested a day after McCullough was killed.
Campos also changed his plea on his original homicide count to insanity – and Circuit Judge Todd Wolf ordered a mental exam.
Campos allegedly told the cellmate he stabbed the woman because she was seeing another man. He and McCullough had broken up before she died.
The inmate went to authorities with Campos’s alleged request. And Campos was charged Friday with soliciting a homicide.
Wolf increased the defendant’s previous $5 million bond to $6 million. Campos is scheduled to enter a plea to the new charge on February 26th.
A four-day trial on his homicide charge is set to begin June 24th.
