PESHTIGO, WI (AP)--   Police say a man sought in connection with a death investigation in Peshtigo, Wisconsin has been taken into custody.

The state Department of Justice says Kaempf was in a relationship with the victim at the time of her death.  She was identified Monday as Patricia Waschbisch, 45, of Peshtigo.

The Justice Department says investigators are treating her death as a homicide.
