3/20/2017 - Torgerson Trial Enters Week 2 -
More Information Trial will resume this morning against Kristopher Torgerson in Marathon County. 12 jurors from Eau Claire County are listening to testimony against Torgerson after the judge ruled that an impartail jury would not be able to picked out of Marathon County due to publicity in the case. Torgerson is charged with murder and hiding a corpse, and attempted robbery in the death of Stephanie Low. Lows body was found in a shallow grave near Wabeno. Torgerson never admitted to killing Low until police told him they were moving forward with filing a murder charge, despite not finding her body. A few days later, Torgerson confessed and led police to the site where he allegedly buried her. Jurors heard a phone call from Torgerson in jail on Friday, where Torgerson says he did not intentionally rob Low or intentionally kill her.
