A Town of Egg Harbor couple is in jail on charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and bail jumping according to a release from the Door County Sheriff’s Department Tuesday. Elizabeth R. Huettl and Michael J. Estevez were originally brought in last month on charges for delivering heroin to a confidential Drug Task Force informant. In the following days, Door County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says investigators learned Estevez allegedly sought out a contract to kill who he thought was the informant. McCarty says not only was the department concerned for the informant, but for other people that might be connected to the case.
According to the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access page, Estevez is due back in court April 10 while Huettl is slated to return April 26. McCarty credits investigators with sticking with the case even when they felt it was falling apart.
