Roofer accused of killing co-worker with circular saw at Wisconsin job site
RIVER FALLS, Wis.—A roofer fatally attacked a co-worker at a River Falls-area job site with a saw, authorities said Tuesday.
The Pierce County Sheriff's Office said a 37-year-old man died at the scene and a 24-year-old suspect was arrested on suspicion of first-degree intentional homicide. The deceased was identified as St. Louis, Mo., resident Israel Valles-Flores.
Sheriff's deputies were called at 4:31 p.m. Monday, Aug. 6, to a home in River Falls for a report of an injured roofer. Valles-Flores was found unconscious on the roof with "severe lacerations to the neck and face," the sheriff's office said.
Deputies unsuccessfully attempted life-saving measures.
The investigation revealed fellow St. Louis resident Maguel A. Nabarro caused Valles-Flores' injuries with a circular saw.
Pierce County District Attorney Sean Froelich said Tuesday he had yet to receive reports on the case.
