Kenosha police identify 3 people who died in senior apartment fire

Authorities have identified the three people who died as a result of a fire at a senior apartment building in southeastern Wisconsin. Kenosha police say 68-year-old Jeanine Black, 72-year-old Paul Neil and 80-year-old Diane Wood, all of Kenosha, died Monday night when a blaze broke out at the Saxony Manor apartments. The release did not say whether they were permanent residents at the apartment complex. Kenosha police officers had evacuated several residents before firefighters arrived. After the fire was contained, crews conducted secondary searches and found two people dead. One of the two appeared to have died from a medical event. A third adult died later at a hospital of injuries sustained in the fire.

Wisconsin prosecutor weighs in on fake GOP electors

A Wisconsin assistant district attorney says state or federal prosecutors should look into a complaint filed a year ago alleging that Republicans committed fraud when they submitted false paperwork saying former President Donald Trump had won the battleground state. Wisconsin is one of seven states where Republican electors met and filed fake paperwork seeking to cast electoral votes for Trump. A liberal attorney filed complaints about the Republicans’ action last year with the bipartisan Wisconsin Elections Commission and the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office. The elections commission hasn’t commented publicly on the complaint and Wednesday’s letter is the first response from Milwaukee County prosecutors.
