WOOD COUNTY (WAOW) -
Sentencing has been set for a Wood County man who pleaded guilty to killing his one-time girlfriend and leaving her body in a bathtub.
Gabriel Campos, 21, pleaded guilty to first-degree intentional homicide in May in the killing of 18-year-old Maisie McCullough of Marshfield last September. He will be sentenced on November 19 to the mandatory punishment of life in prison, according to online court records.
McCullough was found in the bathtub of the home the couple once shared. She had been stabbed in the back and her throat was cut, police said.
In a plea bargain earlier this year, prosecutors dropped another felony charge against Campos - solicitation of first-degree intentional homicide - in a plot in which police say Campos offered another inmate $4,600, a rifle, and a car to kill the man McCullough had dated. Court records show that charge can be considered at sentencing.
According to court records, Campos has a new attorney. Those records had said Campos was going to withdraw his guilty plea, but Friday court records showed he would not do that.
