Woman Returns to Face Charges After 15 Years
After fifteen years, a woman wanted in La Crosse county is back to face the music.
Police say, after losing a custody battle back in '96, Gretchen Kammel took off with her two young children and her boyfriend, racking up a couple of serious felonies in the process. At the time, cops think she may have gone to Mexico. She wound up back in a La Crosse courtroom. And then disappeared again. That was '98. And it wasn't until Sunday night that cops saw the 51 year-old Kammel again. She turned herself in at the county jail, saying she just wants to move forward in her life. She faces possibly 5 felonies.
