Trial set in Oconto County slayings

A rural Shawano man has been ordered to stand trial for the deaths of a woman and her brother in Oconto County. Daniel Schmidt is scheduled to enter pleas October 26th to two counts of first-degree intentional homicide.

The 29 year-old Schmidt is accused of shooting and killing 32 year-old Kimberly Rose and 21 year-old Leonard Marsh in May of 2009 at the home they shared near Gillett.

At a preliminary hearing, witnesses testified Rose loaned Schmidt $1,000 for a motorcycle – and then pressured him to pay it back.

Rose’s teenage son testified that she and Schmidt often argued about marijuana. Prosecutors said Schmidt began to have an affair with Rose – but he and his wife later agreed to try and fix their marriage.
