Man Convicted In Columbia County Homicide Given Life In Prison

(Columbia County) A man convicted in a homicide in Columbia County three years ago has been sentenced to life in prison. Jason Kijewski, formerly of West Allis, was convicted of First-Degree Intentional Homicide in the death of Keith Wolf.

The judge did set a parole eligibility date after 30 years. According to the criminal complaint, the 45-year-old shot Wolf in the head while burglarizing Wolf’s home in the town of Leeds in 2019.

Kijewski claimed that he had randomly chosen Wolf’s home to burglarize because he needed money, and that he had never met Wolf or been to Columbia County prior to that night. 

Kijewski was arrested after being connected to the crime through DNA taken from the mask he was wearing during a police interview.
