Bodies-in-suitcases suspect had many bondage dates

Posted: Updated:

ELKHORN, Wis. (AP) - The lawyer for a former police officer accused of hiding the bodies of two women who died during rough sex in suitcases left along a rural road says his client had encounters involving bondage with many other women as well.

Walworth County Public Defender Travis Schwantes says 52-year-old Steven Zelich had many relationships online and in person with many women. He says some involved bondage and some did not.

Schwantes entered a plea of not guilty for Zelich on Thursday to two charges of hiding a corpse.

Schwantes says Zelich maintains the deaths of 19-year-old Jenny Gamez and 37-year-old Laura Simonson were accidental.
