HALES CORNERS -- A Hales Corners man has been charged with first degree intentional homicide after he admitted to killing his mother.

40-year-old Robert G. Rozewicz was officially charged Tuesday, four days after he was arrested and five days after his mother's disappearance. Officials found unidentified human remains at a Muskego landfill Monday.

According to the criminal complaint, officers were called to check on 68-year-old Julie Rozewicz Friday, but were unable to find her. Robert told officers he hadn't seen her for days.

After finding the woman's phone near the Muskego landfill, officers returned to the suspect's home where they noticed "a large pool of blood at the bottom of a garbage can," as well as "what appeared to be blood stains on a door to the garage as well as on the garage floor."

During questioning, Robert eventually admitted he killed his mother, telling detectives he "took her out" because she was always "looking for little ways to hurt him," including "having the police take him to mental health." The complaint says he told detective he didn't feel bad about killing her.

If convicted, Rozewicz faces life in prison.
