MARSHFIELD – A Marshfield man accused of killing a Wisconsin Rapids baker has pleaded innocent, according to online court records.
Gary Bohman, 59, is facing a first-degree intentional homicide charge in connection with the March 24 shooting death of 39-year-old Christopher Race.
A judge ruled May 2 that there is enough evidence to move forward with the case.
According to the criminal complaint, Bohman told police that he called 911 after the shooting, from a nearby Applebee’s restaurant. He said that he went to Higher Grounds Bakery and Coffee and found the victim lying on the floor.
Police say surveillance footage shows Bohman getting up from a table inside the bakery and shooting Race once in the stomach.
No possible motive has been found for the shooting, although Bohman was previously married to Race’s wife. Bohman filed for divorce in September 2012; it was finalized about a year later. Race and Jacalyn Bohman were married in February 2015.
Bohman remains jailed on a $1 million bond.
