Ben Sabena to stand trial for murder of cop wife on Christmas Eve


MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Iraq War veteran Ben Sebena waived his right to a preliminary hearing Thursday, on charges that he killed his wife while she was on duty as a Wauwatosa police officer.

A court commissioner ordered the 30-year-old Sebena to stand trial on a Milwaukee County charge of first-degree intentional homicide. He’s scheduled to enter a plea to that charge on January 24th.

Sebena was arrested on Christmas Eve, just hours after he allegedly stalked, shot, and killed his 30-year-old wife Jennifer right after she left Wauwatosa’s downtown fire station where she taking a break.

Prosecutors said she was about to patrol alone when she was shot five times in the head. He told investigators he was jealous of his wife – but police have not released a motive for the killing.

Ben Sebena was brought into court in a wheelchair – and he was wearing a suicide prevention jacket. He remains in jail under a $1 million cash bond.
