MARSHFIELD, Wis. (AP) -- Friends in Marshfield are remembering a young homicide victim as a doting mother, hard worker and a generous, compassionate person.
Police are holding the former boyfriend of 18-year-old Maisie McCullough as a suspect in her death. The couple's 2-year-old son was with the man when he turned himself in to authorities Saturday. The child was returned to family members.
McCullough was found dead at her home Friday night. An autopsy shows she had been stabbed in the back and her throat cut.
The Marshfield News-Herald reports a Wood County judge Monday set a $5 million cash bond for 20-year-old Gabriel Luis Campos.
Circuit Judge Nicholas Brazeau says Campos -- also known as Derek Michael Olson -- is accused of first-degree intentional homicide.
Marshfield Police Chief Gary Jepsen says there are no other suspects.
FROM OUR SISTER STATION, WSAW - WAUSAU:
A suspect is in custody in connection with the death of a Marshfield woman late Friday night.
Marshfield police say the 20-year-old Marshfield man turned himself in to Wis. Rapids Police around 4:20 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 8. They are not releasing the suspect's identity at this time and are not commenting on any motive or how he knew the victim while charges are filed.
According to a news release, Maisie E. McCullough's body was found at a residence on the 1300 block of East Blodgett Street just after 10 Friday night. Both the Wood County Coroner and Deputy Coroner tell NewsChannel 7, McCullough's throat was slit and she was stabbed in the back. The Deputy Coroner says an autopsy was done in Portage earlier today but they don't suspect drugs or alcohol to be involved. Authorities say there is no danger to the public and there are no other suspects.
Lt. Kevin Schwartz with the Wis. Rapids Police Dept. says Gabriel Luis Campos, the father of McCullough's 2-year-old son, turned himself into Wis. Rapids Police around 4:20 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 8. Lt. Schwartz will not confirm he is the same suspect Marshfield Police say is in custody in connection with the murder. Schwartz says police arrested Campos without incident at Motel 6 in Wis. Rapids with his son, who is OK at this time. Police say Campos didn't have any weapons, drugs or alcohol on him. He is being held at the Wood Co. jail.
Police say Campos also goes by Derek Olson and he lived with McCullough at the home where she was found dead.
