Yesterday in Jackson County Circuit Court, District Attorney Emily Hynek filed complaints against five individuals in connection with the homicide earlier this month of a Jackson County man previously reported missing. Star Myers is charged with first degree intentional homicide, hiding a corpse, being a felon in possession of a firearm, maintaining a drug trafficking place, and possession with intent to deliver fentanyl, cocaine, and methamphetamine. The other four individuals – Jeffrey Myers-Woychik, Savannah Pellett, Milton Haskins, and Gerardo Trevino — are charged with offenses related to aiding Myers in attempts to conceal the homicide and the victim’s remains, among other charges.
On March 9th, Star Myers contacted the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and reported that she had not seen the decedent for two days. The next day, law enforcement received information that led to the execution of a search warrant at a Manchester residence owned by the decedent and Myers. Several individuals were arrested during that warrant, including Myers-Woychik and Pellett, and law enforcement identified evidence of drug trafficking, a significant number of firearms, and what was later identified as human remains. Through subsequent interviews and investigation, law enforcement determined that Myers had killed the decedent and attempted to conceal the remains.
Myers-Woychik, Savannah Pellett, and Milton Haskins made their initial appearances today from the Jackson County Jail and were ordered held on cash bonds. Star Myers and Gerardo Trevino are expected to appear tomorrow from their respective places of confinement.
This matter remains under investigation by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, the Wisconsin Department of Justice, and the Wisconsin State Crime Lab. All individuals retain their presumption of innocence until proven guilty.
