UNSETTLING details have emerged in the trial of a man accused of murder, including allegations he stalked his ex-girlfriend before killing her new partner.
Zachariah Anderson is accused of killing Rosalio Gutierrez Jr. inside his Kenosha, Wisconsin apartment in Spring 2020 and disposing of the body.
New details were released today, on the 12th day of his trial, from claims made by investigators on the case.
They said Anderson put a burner phone in her car and a GPS tracker to watch and listen to his ex, Sadie Beacham, and now deceased Rosalio Gutierrez Jr., per Law and Crime.
Anderson is also said to have harassed Beacham by ding-dong-ditching her home while Gutierrez was sleeping over.
It is believed he broke into Gutierrez’s car, Beacham testified in court.
Prosecutors allege Anderson killed Gutierrez because of the romantic relationship with Beacham.
Anderson has been charged with a first-degree intentional homicide which is a Class A felony that carries a sentence of life in prison.
He is also charged with felonies for hiding Gutierrez’s body and for stalking Beacham, according to Kenosha News.
Gutierrez was murdered in a gruesome way.
After realizing Gutierrez was officially missing, police discovered his home covered in blood – on the floor, door, and furniture, and his patio door was left open.
He was not home when police arrived and his body was never discovered.
Other evidence was present during the trial on Thursday from Detective Vicente Correa who has been involved in investigating the alleged murder.
Correa presented Anderson’s search history from the day after the murder occurred which showed he looked up the store hours of a few different home improvement stores.
Detectives also revealed after searching Anderson’s van they noticed the carpet was recently pulled out and the entire vehicle smelt like bleach with some scattered blood stains.
A bottle of bleach and pieces of burned clothes were also discovered in Anderson’s recently used fire pit at his house, per detectives.
Anderson’s daughter also testified that she had a marijuana grow operation set up at his Wisconsin home and what seemed to be magic mushrooms in a jar in the fridge.
