Suspect accused of targeting a deputy’s family.
Jeremy J. Murwin, 34, Waupaca, is charged with felony stalking with the use of a weapon, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct with a weapon.
According to the criminal complaint, Murwin slashed the tires on a Waupaca County squad car twice and threw a rock through the window of a squad car that was parked on his neighbor’s property in Farmington.
He also allegedly drove over the neighbors’ mailbox.
He is accused of harassing a deputy and his family since May 2015.
The most recent incident occurred on Oct. 30.
Murwin reportedly told officers he did not like law enforcement.
On Dec. 16, 2015, Murwin was convicted of criminal damage to property and ordered to pay $934 in restitution and court costs.
On Feb. 19, 2016, the court issued a restraining order against Murwin and later issued an injunction ordering him to have no contact with the family for four years.
On Feb. 22, 2016, Murwin was charged with battery, disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property as acts of domestic abuse. He was released from custody on a $1,000 cash bond.
He was found not guilty of battery, criminal damage and bail jumping by reason of mental disease and later committed to a mental health facility.
Murwin was conditionally released into the community in 2016.
He is accused of slashing the deputy’s tires on May 10 and Oct. 30, 2018.
On Nov. 6, Judge Vicki Clussman ordered a competency exam, and Murwin is currently housed at an area mental health facility.
