St. Croix County A pair of discarded shoes that contained the blood of a murder victim and a hidden audio recorder doomed Cristian Nunez in the eyes of a St. Croix County jury. The jury foreman said revelations surrounding those camouflage shoes helped convince fellow jurors that Nunez committed the murders of Courtney Bradford and her 10-year-old daughter, Jasmine. "If it weren't for those shoes," Roberts resident Dan Jacobs said, "it would have been tough."
The man named by police as the main suspect in a grisly double-homicide that shook a New Richmond neighborhood last week has been charged with two counts in connection with the case. Cristian Daniel Nunez, 37, was charged by warrant Thursday in St. Croix County Circuit Court with one count of operating a motor vehicle without owner’s consent and one count of unauthorized use of an entity’s identifying information or documents.
