EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) – A La Crosse County man imprisoned for keeping his mother’s body in a basement freezer and for shooting a neighbor is scheduled to be released from prison in a matter of weeks.

The Department of Corrections tells WEAU-TV that Philip Schuth (SHOOTH) will move to Eau Claire when he’s released from the Columbia Correctional
Institution April 16th. Schuth will be under supervision for the next 10 years.

Schuth lived with his mother, Edith, on French Island near La Crosse and in 2005 shot and wounded a neighbor who had come onto their property. The shooting led to an all-night standoff before Schuth was arrested. Police then discovered the body of Schuth’s mother in a block of ice in the basement. Schuth told police she
had died of natural causes in 2000.
