The courtroom was filled with the families of both the deceased David Schuldes and Ellen Matheys as well as the defendant Raymond Vanneuwenhoven as they awaited the sentencing in the 1976 double homicide that took place at McClintock Park 45 years ago this past July in Marinette County. While many relatives and friends spoke of the loss of David and Ellen only one daughter spoke on her father Raymond’s behalf. After the prosecuting and defense attorneys took their turns speaking Judge James Morrison addressed the court with his sentencing of Vanneuwenhoven.

Prosecuting Attorney DeShea Morrow had this to say after today’s court proceedings.

Vanneuwenhoven will be incarcerated at a State of Wisconsin Penitentiary.
