Parents of triple homicide suspect warned authorities


DARLINGTON (WKOW) -- The parents of a man suspected of killing three farmers in Lafayette County say they warned authorities before the killings that their son was potentially dangerous and delusional.

31-year-old Jaren Kuester is in jail in Lafayette County on three tentative charges of first-degree intentional homicide.  His parents, Kathleen and Jim Kuester, told the Wisconsin State Journal that the killings would not have happened if mental health professionals hospitalized their son as they requested.

Peter Schuler is the head of the Waukesha County mental health system.  Schuler stands by the assessment that Kuester did not meet the criteria defined by state law.
