Vannieuwenhoven found guilty
MARINETTE, Wis. — The 84-year-old man, who was accused of killing a Green Bay, Wis., couple at a campground in Marinette County more than four decades ago, was found guilty today.
Raymand Vannieuwenhoven is convicted of two counts of first-degree murder — a felony punishable by up to life in prison — in the deaths of 25-year-old David Schuldes and 24-year-old Ellen Matheys on July 9, 1976.
According to the criminal complaint, Schuldes was fatally shot through the neck with a .30 caliber firearm as he waited for Matheys outside a bathroom at the McClintock Park campground in the Town of Silver Cliff. The shooter then either ordered or chased Matheys into a nearby wooded area, where she was sexually assaulted and, after being allowed to put some of her clothing back on, shot twice in the torso.
The jury deliberated a little more than two hours before they reached a verdict. Sentencing is set for Aug. 26.
