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.
