BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) — A Franklin man is accused of beating and strangling his estranged wife to death.

Twenty-nine-year-old Sunkeun Kim is charged with first-degree intentional homicide. Police say Kim killed his wife, 24-year-old Madeline Kim, Sunday night while she was in her Brookfield condominium.

Madeline Kim had filed for divorce last month following domestic violence incidents. Court records show Sunkeun Kim was already facing charges of strangulation/suffocation, false imprisonment, battery and disorderly conduct charges filed in September and had been released on a $2,500 cash bond.

As a condition of his bond, Sunkeun Kim had been wearing a GPS tracking device. Police used information from that device to tie him to the murder scene. He is being held in the Waukesha County Jail on a $1 million cash bond.
