Husband of Wauwatosa police officer waives preliminary hearing

MILWAUKEE (WXOW) -- The man accused of killing his wife, a Wauwatosa police officer, waives his preliminary hearing. His case was bound over for trial.

Benjamin Sebena appeared in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Thursday morning. The 30-year-old is charged with First Degree Intentional Homicide in the death of his police officer wife, Jennifer Sebena.

Sebena is an Iraq war veteran who could use post-traumatic stress disorder as a defense.

Police say Sebena confessed to killing his wife in the early morning hours of Christmas Eve.

He's jailed on a $1 million cash bond.  Court records show he'll be back in court on January 24.
