The man accused of brutally killing a Froedtert nurse was in police custody days before the attack.

According to Department of Justice records, Milwaukee Police arrested Kenneth Freeman on Jan. 22, three days before he attacked and killed Carlie Beaudin.

Records show Freeman was arrested for obstructing an officer and use of a weapon, but the District Attorney’s Office didn’t press charges.

Three days after the arrest, investigators say Freeman hid behind a pole in a parking garage near Froedtert Hospital before he violently attacked Beaudin.

He then drove her to a different parking garage and left her there under her own car where she later died.

Freeman had Beaudin’s purse when he was arrested.
