Richard Heyer gets life in prison for killing ex-girlfriend

MARINETTE, WI (WTAQ) - A man will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing his ex-girlfriend while she was working at a gas station.

56-year-old Richard Heyer of Crivitz was sentenced Thursday to life with no chance for a supervised release.

The defense asked for the minimum 20 years before a release could be considered. They also asked for a mental health commitment, but the judge said any such treatment would be left up to prison officials.

Authorities said Heyer shot 51-year-old Ann Schueller once in the back at a Citgo station in Wausaukee a year ago on Monday.

Marinette County District Attorney Allen Brey said the murder was planned, and done in cold blood.

Heyer also wounded himself in the shooting incident.
