Richard Wendell Sotka (Mississippi County Sheriff’s Dept.)

A 48-year-old Wisconsin man has been arrested for allegedly fatally stabbing his girlfriend and her friend to death because he was “humiliated” after he walked in on them having sex with each other. Richard Wendell Sotka was taken into custody on Jan. 29 and charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the brutal slayings of Rhonda Cegelski, 58, and Paula O’Connor, 53, authorities announced.

Officers with the Green Bay Police Department responded to a call on Jan. 29 at a duplex located in the 1600 block of Elkay Lane, according to a press release. Upon arriving at the scene, first responders entered the residence where they found two adult females dead from apparent stab wounds.

Police initially sought Sotka, who was reportedly dating one of the women, as a person of interest in the case, though it was not immediately clear which victim he was dating.

Sotka was already out on bond from a case in Oconto County where he is charged with stalking and harassment/violating a restraining order and was required to wear a GPS ankle monitor. But Sotka allegedly cut the monitoring device from his leg and ditched it along Interstate 41, Green Bay Fox affiliate WLUK-TV reported.

Sotka was apprehended approximately 10 hours after the victims’ bodies were discovered, authorities in Mississippi County, Arkansas, said.

A criminal complaint obtained by WLUK reportedly states that after his arrest, Sotka confessed that he was responsible for killing the two women in Green Bay but adamantly denied the stalking charges.
