Bail was set today for the man accused of stabbing another to death in a casino parking lot.
Robert Pulvermacher, 68, who is charged with stabbing 88-year-old Harold Johnson to death in the parking lot of Ho-Chunk Casino in Baraboo last week, appeared in Sauk County Circuit Court at 2:30 p.m.
Pulvermacher’s bail was set at $250,000.
In the event Pulvermacher is able to post bail, the judge banned him from having any weapons, leaving the state or having any contact with Johnson’s extended family.
Robert Pulvermacher was arrested early Wednesday morning at Pulvermacher Cartage of Wisconsin in Madison.
It was a Pulvermacher Cartage employee who called police when they noticed Robert Pulvermacher trying to get into the business. He was arrested a short time later after being on the run for about a week.
Vernon Pulvermacher, who owns Pulvermacher Cartage, released a statement Thursday afternoon about his relative charged with homicide in Sauk County:
“On behalf of the Pulvermacher family, I want to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. Johnson. This entire episode saddens our hearts.
I want to thank the employees of Pulvermacher Cartage of WI for being alert and proactively notifying law enforcement of the appearance of a fugitive-at-large. We could not ask for a more responsible group of employees.
While Robert is a relative, he is not employed at our company and has no connection to the business.
We are and will continue to work proactively with law enforcement as they investigate this case. We ask that anyone in the public who has information about this case, please reach out to the proper authorities.”
