MADISON — A 53-year-old man charged last week in the 2008 killing of a University of Wisconsin-Madison student was set to be released from prison on a drunken driving sentence.

David Kahl is accused of killing 21-year-old Brittany Zimmerman, who was found strangled and stabbed in her downtown apartment after she returned home from class.

Kahl is charged with first-degree intentional homicide as a party to a crime and by use of a dangerous weapon.

A judge has signed an order for Kahl’s release, but officials say once that happens he would be taken into custody on the homicide warrant and returned to Madison.
