Todd Kendhammer Trial


Opening statements are expected to begin Monday afternoon for the trial of Todd Kendhammer in La Crosse County, Wisconsin. Kendhammer is accused of beating his wife Barbara to death, and then faking a car accident to cover up the crime.

Kendhammer claimed while he and Barbara were driving, a metal pipe fell off of a flatbed truck, going through their windshield, killing Barbara. Suveillance video showed a car that looked like their Toyota Camry in the area, but no sign of such truck. A study from a state crime lab found that the pipe hit the windshield at least once before it broke through the glass, and that there was no blood on the pipe.
