Ulisses Medina Espinoza of Beaver Dam is charged with First Degree Intentional Homicide in the death of his ex-wife Stacia Hollinshead of Sycamore, Illinois. Kreuziger says they have collected a lot of evidence so far, including official documents from Illinois courts. Search warrants have been executed in Wisconsin and Illinois, including the victims home and workplace. He says the evidence is now being analyzed.
