Ex-mistress testifies in homicide case
It was a dramatic day of testimony Wednesday in Walworth County Circuit Court during the preliminary hearing of David Brossard, accused of killing his wife in 1997, Dawn, and dumping her body into Lake Geneva.
Gazette reporter Ted Sullivan, who works out of our Delavan newsroom, said the day started slowly as the prosecution's star witness, Carol Badoni, refused to testify.
Sullivan reported that after Judge Michael Gibbs declared Badoni a hostile witness at the request of Walworth County District Attorney Phil Koss, she began to testify about her earlier comments to police.
Badoni went on to testify that Brossard told her he planned to kill his wife for cheating on him.
Badoni also testified that Brossard might be the father of her child and might be tied to the mob.
Brossard's defense attorney said the woman has fantasies and can't be believed.
Walworth County Circuit Court Judge Michael Gibbs ruled there was enough evidence for Brossard to be bound over for trial.
