A neighbor of the victims in last week's triple homicide has been arrested on three counts of first degree intentional homicide. Rock County Sheriff Bob Spoden says 47-year-old James C. Koepp was brought in Tuesday night after leading deputies on a high-speed chase.
Spoden says that while he can not comment on a motive that led to Keopp's arrest on three counts of first degree intentional homicide. The Sheriff's Department is not searching for any additional suspects at this time. Formal charges could be filed by Friday against Koepp.
Spoden declined to say what evidence they've collected against Koepp, but police executed search warrants on a residence and two vehicles in connection with the investigation. Wisconsin Department of Corrections records show Koepp has been a registered sex offender since 1984.
Police have been investigating the deaths of 38-year-old Danyetta Lentz, 17-year-old Nicole Lentz, and 14-year-old Scott Lentz since Friday, when their bodies were found inside their mobile home in the Terrace Mobile Home Park near Janesville. Koepp lived in a trailer in the same park.
