West Allis Officer Fights Guilty Plea

West Allis Officer Fights Guilty Plea

The former West Allis police officer who admitted to killing two women and stuffing their bodies into suitcases can continue to fight his guilty plea.

A judge this week said Steven Zelich can try and withdraw one of his pleas. Zelich pleaded guilty in 2016 to choking 19-year-old Jenny Gamez to death, then trying to hide her body. He agreed to a reckless homicide plea. He now wants to withdraw that plea. Zelich is also serving time for a similar case in Minnesota.
