(DUBOIS CO.) – Dubois County Circuit Court Judge Nathan Verkamp sentenced Kyle Schneider to 85-years in prison for the stabbing to death 23-year-old Chloie Lubbehusen on January 11, 2019 at a house near St. Anthony.
He also received an additional six years in prison on a charge of possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon – making his total sentence 91 years in prison.
On February 11, 2019 Dubois County deputies responded to the scene at 8:26 a.m. after neighbors found Lubbehusen bleeding from the face on the porch. She was rushed by ambulance to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center where she died from her injuries.
According to the Dubois County Coroner Bob Veatch, preliminary autopsy results indicate she bled to death.
Deputies say that they found a bloody knife in the living room of the home. They 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. He then shouted, “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 the police that he and Lubbehusen had an altercation but could not remember anything else other then that he stabbed Lubbehusen multiple times. He did not have an explanation for his actions.
