Kizer, 23, was a teenager at the time she was accused of shooting 34-year-old Randall Volar of Kenosha twice in the head, setting his house on fire, and fleeing in his vehicle.

That was in 2018. Kizer claims Volar sexually assaulted her and other teenage girls.

Kizer was brought back into custody following a warrant for her arrest on separate charges from a Milwaukee domestic incident. U.S. Marshals authorities arrested her after she went on the run in February in Louisiana.

Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley’s request to combine both cases was denied on Tuesday. Circuit Court Judge David Wilk agreed to increase Kizer’s bond to $750,000.

A jury trial was originally scheduled for June 10. The defense had requested an adjournment to allow more time for an expert witness to testify.

Kizer is scheduled for sentencing on August 19th.
