Green Bay man arrested in death of girlfriend

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay police have arrested a 31-year-old man after finding his girlfriend dead in the basement of their apartment.

The man was taken into custody Sunday on a tentative murder charge in the death of 26-year-old Wendy Garcia.

The suspect is expected to be in court Monday afternoon.

The man allegedly went to a friend’s house crying and said he had hurt his girlfriend. The friend called police at about 5 p.m. Saturday and urged them to check the apartment.

The man allegedly told investigators an argument between him and his girlfriend had become physical.

A four-year-old boy described as the victim’s son from a previous relationship was found in the apartment unharmed.
