Plea Deal Possible in Greenfield Murder Case
Christopher Gish may enter a plea at his scheduled trial date in November.
A plea deal could be in the works for a Greenfield man accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death in July.
Christopher Gish, 38, didn’t appear in front of Milwaukee County Circuit Court Jeffrey Wagner on Monday, but attorneys in the case have scheduled a potential plea deal Nov. 19, the day Gish’s trial was set to take place.
According to the criminal complaint:
Police say Gish stabbed Margaret Litwicki, 27, several times inside her home located in the 4400 block of West Morgan Avenue in July.
Two Greenfield police officers went to Litwicki’s address after her car had been found by the Oak Creek Police Department, abandoned and apparently in a crash.
The officers were eventually allowed into the house and found Litwicki in an upstairs bedroom dead of apparent stab wounds to her torso and face. The medical examiner said Litwicki likely died as a result of a stab wound to the chest and that she had suffered numerous other stab wounds to the neck, head and extremities, according to the complaint.
Gish said he may have stabbed Litwicki four or five times, the complaint said.
Gish is currently in Milwaukee County Jail while awaiting a resolution to the case.
