MARINETTE COUNTY - A Peshtigo man has now been charged with killing his girlfriend.
Late Wednesday afternoon, authorities released documents which shed new light on the death investigation of Trish Waschbisch.
Waschbisch was the interim director of Rainbow House in Marinette, providing services for victims of domestic abuse.
Her boyfriend, Brent Kaempf, now charged with killing her, specifically first degree intentional homicide, is set to appear in court Thursday morning.
According to court documents, Waschbisch's daughter found her mother's body Sunday night on the bathroom floor of their Peshtigo home. When officers arrived, they found two knives and a large amount of blood around Waschbisch's body.
"She was killed with a knife, which severed her jugular vein," said Allen Brey, the district attorney for Marinette County.
According to the criminal complaint, several hours after authorities arrived at Waschbisch's Peshtigo home, police found Kaempf sleeping in his car in Wauwatosa. Kaempf was taken to a hospital in Milwaukee County to receive treatment for a wrist injury. That is where he apparently told authorities he ran away from home because he killed his girlfriend.
"According to the complaint he told the police that he stabbed her with a knife and killed her," said Brey. "Takes a lot of the guess work out of it."
Also in the complaint, we learned the night before Waschbisch's body was found, she, her daughter and Kaempf were at a friend's house for drinks and a bonfire. Authorities say that night Waschbisch told a friend she was done with Kaempf because he was stalking her the previous night at an area bar. Waschbisch told the friend she asked Kaempf to leave the bar, but he refused, claiming she would cheat on him.
"Everyone in a relationship has disagreements with their partner," said Brey. "There is nothing unusual about that at all. The manner of death here is really what played into the charge."
Annie Jarvey says Waschbisch used her position at Rainbow House to help her with a situation.
"Trish was there, went to court with me, helped me get a restraining order and was there with me every step of the way," said Jarvey, of Peshtigo.
Now the people Waschbisch touched are left trying to properly honor her memory.
"She was just fun to talk to," said Jarvey. "If you ever seen her out anywhere she was always smiling, happy, just full of life and love."
Jarvey told FOX 11 she is trying to organize a candle light vigil at Waschbish's Peshtigo home for this Friday night.
Waschbisch's son also told FOX 11 a candle light vigil would be held at the home on Saturday night.
