But two of Juedes’ children from a previous marriage were suspicious. They sued Schulz-Juedes two years after their father’s death, alleging she killed her husband in a plot to recover more than $200,000 in life insurance for which she was a beneficiary, the Wausau Daily Herald said.
Schulz-Juedes had long defended her innocence. "I don't feel I am a person of interest in my husband's death," Schulz-Juedes told the Wausau Daily Herald in 2013. "Most of the money went to the kids.”
The Marathon County sheriff said the arrest was made with the help of the local medical examiner, the district attorney’s office, the Wisconsin Department of Justice, and the FBI, among other state agencies.
Schulz-Juedes is being held in Marathon County Jail, Parks said.
Her bail has been set at $1 million, according to the Daily Herald.
