(DUBOIS CO.) – New information was released in the stabbing death of 23-year-old Chloie Lubbehusen.
27-year-old Kyle Schneider is charged in connection with her murder.
He appeared in court Monday afternoon and Dubois County Judge Nathan Verkamp appointed Tim Demotte to represent Schneider.
During that hearing, Schneider was informed that the Dubois County Prosecutor’s Office has filed a notice of intent to seek habitual offender status against him.
The latest filing notes Schneider was convicted and sentenced on May 30, 2012, of felony burglary in Dubois County and, on July 18, 2017, he committed felony domestic battery in Dubois County, a crime for which he was sentenced June 4 of last year.
The court entered a preliminary plea of not guilty on Schneider’s behalf but ordered that he continue to be held without bond at the Dubois County Security Center. His next court appearance was set for March 18.
The incident happened at a home on East County Road 650 in St. Anthony on Friday, January 11.
Deputies responded at 8:26 a.m. after neighbors found Lubbehusen bleeding from the face on the porch. She was transported to Memorial Hospital where she succumbed from her injuries.
According to the Dubois County Coroner Bob Veatch, preliminary autopsy results indicate she bled to death from her injuries.
Deputies say they found a bloody knife in the living room of the home, then searched the area for Schneider.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Police found Schneider naked except for a pair of socks, in a neighbor’s garage lying on the floor with blood on his hands.
According to Indiana State Police detective Brock Werne, Schneider was ordered to show his hands to which he stated, “do not shoot me, I want to tell you my side of the story.”
Deputies say Schneider seemed agitated, angry and very disoriented.
After deputies put Schneider in a police car, they say he rolled down the window and said, “have you ever killed anybody?” The deputy said, “no”, and deputies say he stated, “this would be my first.”
According to the affidavit, Schneider kept rambling and asking deputies random questions on the way to the jail.
When deputies asked Schneider to give them a timeline of events, he continued to yell incoherently.
Schneider told police, he and Lubbehusen had an altercation but could not remember anything else other then he stabbed Lubbehusen multiple times but did not give police an explanation for his actions.
