HARTFORD, WI (WTAQ) - A 19-year-old Hubertus man is due in court Wednesday, after being arrested for the apparent strangulation death of a 19-year-old woman in Hartford.

Police did not immediately release the suspect’s name. Police say they’ll release more information about the case Wednesday.

Jessie Blodgett was found dead in a bedroom of her parents’ home on July 15th.

Police have not said what caused the death, but a search warrant affidavit said the woman had a “ligature mark” on her neck – which could indicate the victim was strangled.
