Ex-officer pleads not guilty
 in suitcase slaying
House ethics panel 
continues probe of WI lawmaker

KENOSHA A former police officer pleaded not guilty Monday in the death of one of two women whose bodies were found hidden in suitcases left along a rural Wisconsin highway. Steven Zelich, 52, entered his plea in Kenosha County, where he has been charged with first-degree homicide and hiding a corpse in the 2012 death of Jenny Gamez, a 19-year-old college student from Cottage Grove, Oregon. Zelich also is a suspect in the death of a Farmington, Minnesota, woman.

 

WASHINGTON The House Ethics Committee said Monday it will continue investigating a Wisconsin congressman's stock dealings following a media report that that raised questions about his portfolio. Republican Congressman Tom Petri requested the investigation in February. Petri has since said he will not run for re-election in November, retiring after 18 terms in Congress.

 

Fiers and Brewers dominate
Blue Jays in 6-1 win
No. 14 Badgers won't 
unveil starting QB until LSU
MILWAUKEE Mike Fiers pitched seven dominant innings and Jonathan Lucroy and Aramis Ramirez each had a pair of doubles as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 6-1 on Tuesday night. In his third start since being recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Aug. 9, Fiers (3-1) held the Blue Jays to two hits and one run and retired the final 18 batters he faced in a 106-pitch outing.

MADISON No. 14 Wisconsin won't disclose its starting quarterback until he jogs on to the field for the season opener on Aug. 30 against No. 13 LSU. That decision was relayed Monday by coach Gary Andersen following the team's second scrimmage, which lasted about 60 to 70 snaps.

 

Doe targets ask court 
not to unseal documents
Wisconsin officials 
consider adopting wheel tax
MADISON Three targets of a secret investigation into possible illegal coordination between Gov. Scott Walker's campaign and conservative interest groups have asked a federal appeals court not to release sealed documents pertaining to the case.

EAU CLAIRE Some Wisconsin communities are considering adding a vehicle registration fee to offset road repair and maintenance costs. The fee, known as a wheel tax, would help local governments raise money for transportation-related projects.

 

Alleged confession 
preceded charges in 1984 death
In new book, Ryan takes
 on stubborn GOP orthodoxy

MILWAUKEE A Wisconsin Rapids man accused of murdering his wife decades ago was charged because he allegedly confessed to the killing to relatives and fellow inmates, court records show. Joseph B. Reinwand, who is scheduled to make an initial appearance in court Tuesday, was charged last week in the 1984 death of his 19-year-old wife, Pamela Reinwand.

 

WASHINGTON As Congress hurtled toward a government shutdown in the fall of 2013, Rep. Paul Ryan looked around at fellow Republicans who were agitating to shutter national parks, federal agencies and Head Start programs. "This can't be the full measure of our party and our movement," Ryan writes of that moment in his new book, released Tuesday. "If it is, we're dead and the country is lost."

Manziel's gesture taints Brown's loss to Redskins
LANDOVER, Md. If the Cleveland Browns pick a quarterback based solely on numbers, there's not much either Johnny Manziel or Brian Hoyer did to show he deserves the job. If the choice is based on maturity, the hot-shot rookie's obscene gesture lost him some ground to the nondescript sixth-year veteran.
