Public records show Julie and Robert Rozewicz live at the home near South 116th Street and Timberline Lane in Hales Corners.

Neighbors said they are mother and son.

One neighbor said the last conversation she had with Julie Rozewicz was regarding help for her son's mental health issues.

Robert Rozewicz was charged with a felony in May 2015 -- accused of fleeing an officer. According to a criminal complaint, Rozewicz took gas from a gas station without paying, and wouldn't stop for police.

Court documents show that during the court proceedings, the judge asked for a competency hearing, and Robert Rozewicz was found not competent to proceed. He was ordered committed for treatment for incompetency.

According to Milwaukee County Jail records, Rozewicz is currently being held in jail on a $500,000 bond.

    Yes you are opinionated, but have nothing to say that is factual.
    Like blaming “liberals” for this. Duh, bus-window drooler, liberals want to help people through social-services, hence more taxes. Republicans do not want to pay for social-services, hence less taxes.
    Maybe try living in the real world, where opinions aren’t facts, bonehead….
