KENOSHA (WKOW) -- Bond of $1 million cash has been set for a Kenosha man accused of beating and strangling a co-worker and leaving her body in a cemetery.
Lisa Marie Mezera was found dead in a Somers cemetery August 19. A criminal complaint says a man she worked with was the last person seen with 26-year-old victim and that DNA evidence ties him to the fatal attack.
Fifty-two-year-old Javier Garcia was charged Thursday with first-degree intentional homicide. Garcia's attorney, Matthew Perz, says the case is highly circumstantial.
Reports say Garcia admitted picking up Mezera at her house, but said she was so intoxicated they only drove around for about 30 minutes before she got out of the vehicle at an intersection.
