Janesville victim had cord around her neck

JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- An affidavit supporting police searches in connection to a Janesville woman's homicide states the victim was found with a cord wrapped around her neck.

Court documents state the cord on 46-year old Traci Moyer was white rope, and was seized by officers, as was duct tape.

Authorities say Moyer's estranged husband, 54-year old Krystofer Carlisle was arrested Tuesday on the tentative charge of first degree intentional homicide. Authorities say Moyer was strangled.

The search warrant affidavit states the victim's 18-year old daughter contacted police after Moyer failed to pick up Moyer's other daughter at school, and after the 18-year old was unable to get inside a home on West Racine Street to check on her mother.

Court documents state Carlisle was lying next to Moyer in a bedroom, and was unresponsive. Authorities say he remains under medical care. Rock County District Attorney Perry Foltz says this homicide case will not be reviewed until Carlisle is medically cleared. Authorities decline to say where Carlisle is being treated.

Moyer filed for divorce from Carlisle last month. In a letter to the court, Carlisle wrote, "she blindsided me," contested the divorce, and pushed for reconciliation.

"Traci stated that I was a great guy, the only reason she felt she had leave was due to my temper, which is now controlled by the appropriate medication that I had stopped using three years ago," Carlisle wrote.

Neighbor Chris Wuthrich tells 27 News the couple was quiet, but Carlisle was domineering.

"Seems like she wasn't allowed to do anything," Wuthrich says.

"It seemed like he had control of her life. She wasn't allowed to wave at the neighbors or associate with any of us."

Wuthrich says Carlisle is a retired, disabled veteran. A Marine Corps flag flies at the West Racine Street where he was living, and where Moyer's body was found.

"I am in love with my wife," Carlisle wrote to the court in the divorce proceeding.

"I do not want to start over with anyone else."
