NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a Mosinee man with killing a woman who disappeared last fall. Jesus Contreras Perez was charged Monday in Clark County with being a party to first-degree intentional homicide, hiding a corpse and stalking in connection with 27-year-old Cassandra Ayon’s disappearance in October.

According to a criminal complaint, Ayon’s friends told investigators that Perez had been stalking her since she broke up with him. A woman who cut Perez’s hair told police that he was angry that she wouldn’t let him see their child.

Ayon was reported missing by her parents at 12:39 p.m. Oct. 4, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators determined that she was last seen around 3:45 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, in the Unity, Wis., area when she left a friend’s home.
