Captain Dennis Kocken of the Brown County Sheriff's Department says the pickup's 27-year-old driver was placed in custody at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay, where he was being treated. Kocken says the preliminary investigation leads authorities to believe that the driver deliberately carried out a mission to slay the two officers. The captain says there were no skid marks leading up to the crash. The officers killed were identified as 55-year-old Robert Etter and 32-year-old Stephanie Markins, both of the Hobart-Lawrence Police Department. The pickup, which was driving on Highway 54, smashed into the driver's side of the police squad car at about 4:30 p-m. The squad car was parked at a stop sign on a side street. Hobart-Lawrence Police Chief John Konopacki says Etter was training Markins, who joined the department last month.

Tyson Tyson Kreuscher of Oneida was in court Tuesday. A criminal complaint says Kreuscher (pictured in court with lawyer) crashed his truck into the officers' squad car at speeds of 65 or 70 mph. Officers Robert Etter and Stephanie Markins (pictured) were waiting to turn onto the highway when their car was hit Monday afternoon. Kreuscher's aunt, Marlee Wiederhoest, said her nephew has been trying hard to get better, and doesn't know what happened. He was reportedly being treated for depression. Kreuscher told investigators he sometimes sees things on the road that he feels like ramming with his truck, according to the criminal complaint. Kreusche, who has no criminal record other than a misdemeanor marijuana possession conviction in Michigan, said he thought about driving his truck into a pole after leaving work yesterday, but changed his mind, the complaint said. Marlee Wiederhoest said the family is devastated and is praying for everyone involved. She says they're very sorry about what happened.
