Osseo police have arrested a woman in the death of her boyfriend's 22-month-old daughter. Officers on Thursday arrested the 22-year-old woman in Jackson County on suspicion of first-degree reckless homicide.

According to police, the woman found Alexis Behlke not breathing early on June 22. The girl was taken to a hospital in Osseo where she was pronounced dead. The former Osseo woman was the girl's caregiver. She was arrested at her new home in Garfield.

Osseo Police Chief Timothy Wilson expects the woman will appear in court Monday. It's not clear when the Trempealeau County District Attorney's office will make a charging decision.

A La Crosse courtroom hears from the defendant in the Petras murder case...on video.

On Thursday, the jury viewed a videotaped conversation between a state agent and suspect Jeff Lepsch, who's accused of killing Paul and A.J. Petras last fall at May's Photo in La Crosse. Lepsch was arrested within hours of the recording. On the video, Lepsch asks the agent why investigators waited a month after the murders to accuse him of being involved.  Despite Lepsch's denial of having ever been to the camera shop, the agent suggested that they had security video of him coming and going from the crime scene. Defense attorneys wonder whether the agent was lying to get Lepsch to talk.

Online Meet Goes South Quick

Written by

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) Sheriff's deputies in Eau Claire County say they interviewed a woman the Wisconsin State Patrol said was held against her will and determined she had not been abducted.

The sheriff's department was notified by the State Patrol Tuesday afternoon that troopers were trying to find a woman that had contacted authorities for help. Deputies found the 19-year-old Whitehall woman locked in the bathroom of a gas station near Eau Claire. They interviewed her and a 32-year-old Edina, Minn., who had picked her up. Authorities say the two met online and were headed for the Mall of America.

The man changed those plans and began caressing the woman. She told him she need to use a restroom and then called for help. The man was cited for disorderly conduct.
