GREEN BAY – Police say the suspect wanted for a Green Bay homicide was arrested in Kenosha after strangling a woman he met online.
Terry Lee Shepard, 22, was taken into custody late Thursday night after police received information about his location. Officials say he was hiding out at a Kenosha residence.
Racine Police say they received a call Tuesday from a 38-year-old Racine woman saying she had been tied up, strangled and robbed by a man, whom she had met on an online chatting site and invited to her house.
The man was later identified as Terry Lee Shepard. Police say he strangled the woman into unconsciousness and locked her in the basement of the residence.
Officials say Shepard also threatened to harm the victim’s children.
The Racine Police Department says his cousin, Marqanette Shepard, assisted Shepard in the crime. Both Marqanette and Terry Lee Shepard were taken into custody Thursday.
There was a warrant issued for Shepard’s arrest after the shooting death of 32-year-old Steven Sims in the 1100 block of Stuart St. in April.
Authorities say Shepard will be transported to Brown County to face a charge of 1st Degree Intentional Homicide.
The Green Bay Police Department has been working with several law enforcement agencies to locate Shepard for the past few months.
They say charges are also expected to be filed in Racine County for both Terry and Marqanette. Charges will include Attempted Homicide, Strangulation, Strong-armed Robbery and False Imprisonment.
