Ex-boyfriend being held in death of Marshfield mom

CREATED Sep. 10, 2012

MARSHFIELD, Wis. (AP) -- Friends in Marshfield are remembering a young homicide victim as a doting mother, hard worker and a generous, compassionate person.

Police are holding the former boyfriend of 18-year-old Maisie McCullough as a suspect in her death. The couple's 2-year-old son was with the man when he turned himself in to authorities on Saturday. The child was returned to family members.

McCullough was found dead at her home Friday night. An autopsy shows she had been stabbed in the back and her throat had been cut. The Marshfield News-Herald ( ) says the Wood County district attorney could file charges Monday.

Co-workers at Culver's in Marshfield say Maisie was a fantastic friend who will be deeply missed.
