Judge Orders Return of Helmbrecht

A judge in Eau Claire has given a local murder suspect two days to come back to the state of Wisconsin.

Shane Helmbrecht has been missing since he walked away from halfway House in Tomah. Authorities in New Mexico detained Helmbrecht last week, but had to let him go because his disappearance is a civil matter, not a criminal one. The judge yesterday said if Helmbrecht does not return to Wisconsin, there will likely be a warrant out for his arrest. Helmbrecht was accused of murdering his neighbor back in 2016 but was found not competent enough to stand trial. He was ordered to stay at a state mental health facility, but was transferred to a halfway house back in January.
