Ex-cop tells police he was present when woman died

WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) — A former Wisconsin police officer suspected in the death of at least one of two women whose bodies were stuffed into suitcases and discarded on a rural highway says he was present when she was killed in Minnesota.

The man is jailed in Wisconsin on tentative charges of hiding a corpse.

Rochester, Minnesota, police Capt. John Sherwin said Thursday that the 52-year-old man acknowledged during questioning in Wisconsin that the woman had died in Rochester and he was there when she died.

Sherwin says police believe the woman was killed a hotel because she checked in with the ex-officer on Nov. 2. He left alone the next day.

On Wednesday, detectives wearing hazmat suits removed large, brown bags of evidence and a refrigerator from the man's apartment in suburban Milwaukee.
