Wrongful Death Park Falls, WI Man Killed Wife

A Park Falls man is accused of stabbing his wife to death in their home Thursday hours after domestic battery charges were filed against him in Price County Circuit Court.

At about 5:21 p.m. Thursday, police were called to a home in the 200 block of Second Avenue, according to a news release issued Friday by Wisconsin Department of Justice officials. Dawn R. Rambo, 37, was found there suffering from multiple stab wounds and later was pronounced dead at a local hospital, according to the release.


The victim’s 46-year-old husband, William R. Rambo, was arrested Thursday evening on a preliminary charge of first-degree intentional homicide, according to the news release. His arrest on homicide charges is not the first time the courts have been involved in the Rambos’ lives; William Rambo was ordered by a judge in a domestic battery case Aug. 12 not to have contact with Dawn Rambo, according to online court records.

He faces life in prison if convicted.

No additional details will be released about the case until official charges are filed, state Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said in a news release Friday. Several calls to the Price County Sheriff’s Department were not returned.

Rambo was charged Thursday in Price County Court on misdemeanor charges of battery and disorderly conduct, online court records show; he was expected to make an initial appearance Sept. 10.

Battery and disorderly conduct charges filed in 2009 against Rambo were dismissed after he entered into a plea agreement with prosecutors, according to court records.

Rambo is being held in the Price County Jail, according to Vinelink, an online service that provides information about offenders in the custody of county jails in Wisconsin. He is expected to make an initial appearance in Price County Circuit Court on Monday; no official charges have yet been filed.
