Wisconsin man charged with killing wife in 1984

Portage County prosecutors have charged a 55-year-old Wisconsin Rapids man in the 1984 shooting death of his wife.

Pamela Reinwand died of a wound to the head at her Plover home in May 1984. Her husband, Joseph Reinwand, told deputies then that she committed suicide over an argument after a night at a bar.

Joseph Reinwand, who's in prison on unrelated burglary charges, was charged Thursday with first-degree murder. He's due for his initial appearance on the new charge Tuesday. Online court records don't list an attorney.

Daily Tribune Media report he's already due to stand trial Oct. 20 on a separate charge in Wood County in the 2008 shooting death of 35-year-old Dale Meister, of Wisconsin Rapids. Evidence in that case led authorities to revisit the wife's death.
