A 50-year-old Barry County man has been arrested and charged with open murder, according to the Barry County Sheriff’s Office. On Sept. 12 at 12:07 p.m. deputies responded to 5494 Lindsey Road, Delton, on the report of a deceased individual and found the body of Karinsa Lyyn Wisniewski, 39.
As a result of an investigation, Douglas Allen Wortinger, 50, the victim’s boyfriend, was arrested and has been charged with open murder by the Barry County Prosecutor’s Office.
