Murder trial begins for man accused of killing son


The trial for a New Richmond man charged with killing his 20-year-old son started Monday.

Last year, 43-year-old Kayle Fleischauer pleaded not guilty to first-degree intentional homicide.

According to a complaint, Kayle’s daughter called 911 after finding her brother, Chase, lying on the floor of her father’s home in April 2018.

Authorities say Fleischauer was acting strangely when deputies arrived, and they could smell intoxicants on him. 

The trial is scheduled to run through June 12.
