Woman who offered $25,000 reward in husband’s killing now charged with his murder

A Wisconsin woman once offered $25,000 to anyone with information about the 2006 murder of her husband. She will now be charged with the crime.

Investigators say Kenneth Juedes, 58, had two fatal shotgun blasts to his chest when Cindy Schulz-Juedes of Chippewa Falls reported that she found her husband dead and didn’t know who had shot him, according to WSAW-TV.

Schulz-Juedes, now 65, had long been considered a person of interest in the pharmacist’s death and WSAW reported Monday that she will be charged with first-degree-intentional homicide.

Investigators say a $1 million insurance policy and ownership of a 20-gauge shotgun contributed to motive and means for the crime, WSAW reports.

“I don’t feel I am a person of interest in my husband’s death,” Schulz-Juedes told the Wausau Daily Herald in 2013. “Most of the money went to the kids. Moneywise, my husband and I together would have earned more in two years than I ever would have gotten from his death, and I still would have had my husband.”

She is being held on held on a $1 million cash bond.
