Police in Wisconsin have arrested an 18-year-old suspect in the apparent homicide of a respected doctor and her husband who were found dead or dying in a ditch on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus Tuesday morning.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, a jogger discovered Dr. Beth Potter, 52, and her husband, Robin Carre, 57, in an outdoor recreational area on the university campus. According to local reports, Potter was still alive when emergency responders arrived at the scene but later died at a hospital. Carre was declared dead at the scene, but it is not clear if he was dead by the time the pair was first discovered.
Dr. Potter worked at a university-run medical center, and Carre ran an educational consulting business and was also an athletic coach. Police said earlier this week that the pair was targeted and the killing was not random. They have not released the specific cause of death.
According to a court filing obtained by WKOW, Khari Sanford was booked into the Dane County jail on Friday with a preliminary charge of first-degree intentional homicide.
