Wisconsin abuse shelter named for killed counselor
MARIENNET, Wis. (AP) – A Marinette domestic abuse shelter is being renamed after a counselor who was murdered by her boyfriend. WLUK-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1ABkUrm ) the Rainbow House will now bear the name of 45-year-old Patricia Waschbisch. Friends gathered at the shelter Wednesday to pay tribute and unveil a memorial plaque. Waschbisch was stabbed to death in April 2013. Her boyfriend, Brent Kaempf, was sentenced in January to life in prison without parole. He pleaded no contest to first-degree intentional homicide. According to the complaint, friends told authorities that Waschbisch said she was going to break up with Kaempf. The Patricia Waschbisch Center Against Domestic Violence serves Oconto, Marinette and Menominee counties.
