A second man has pleaded no contest in Dane county circuit court for kidnapping and shooting a 22-year old woman after a three county crime spree last fall. 37-year old Maurice Mason of Mauston and his nephew were accused of kidnapping Jennifer Hitchcock last October by attacking her and holding her hostage in the trunk of her car for several days, then killing her.
The crime spree also took the men to Baraboo where they killed a cab driver and left another man bound and gagged in a farm building in Juneau county for six days following a robbery.
no sentencing date has been set.
