BROWN DEER, Wis. (WSAU) - Brown Deer is hiring an independent law enforcement instructor to review the way the city’s police department handled incidents involving the man who went on a fatal shooting rampage at a Brookfield spa.

All contacts the Brown Deer police had with Radcliffe Haughton will be reviewed by Robert Willis. Haughton killed his estranged wife Zina and two others October 21st. Since then, Brown Deer police have been criticized for not arresting Haughton during several domestic incidents involved the couple over the last 11 years.

A dozen Wisconsin lawmakers accused the police chief of not following the state’s mandatory arrest law on at least two of the domestic violence cases reported. Lawmakers from the area said last week’s call for action was a “knee-jerk reaction,” but they are in favor of an independent review.
