The Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release late yesterday that the husband of a Green Bay area woman found dead by hunters over the weekend is being held in connection with her murder. 40-year-old Ambrose Greaves of Ashwaubenon is confined to the Manitowoc County Jail this morning for the crime.
The body of 50-year-old Miki Greaves was located early Saturday morning along side Chupita road in the town of Cooperstown. The victim was partially clothed and was surrounded by boxes, an umbrella and candy wrappers. Authorities had said earlier they believed the body had been in the far Northwestern Manitowoc County location for “less than 24 hours.”
Coroner Jeffrey Schroeder says an autopsy completed yesterday morning showe Miki Greaves died of multiple sharp force injuries and her death has been ruled a homicide. He said toxicology results are pending.
Sheriff Rob Hermann didn’t know whether the couple was having marital problems. Hermann did confirm that Ambrose Greaves was involved in a single vehicle mishap on I-43 Friday evening, when the injuries were not consistent with the crash. Brown County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Brian Westphal said the vehicle left the roadway, near Pine Grove Road, because of injuries the driver suffered before the crash.
