WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (AP) — A 22-year-old Marshfield man convicted of killing the mother of his child has been sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole in 40 years.

Gabriel Campos was arrested at a Wisconsin Rapids motel with his 2-year-old son in September 2012, a day after his ex-girlfriend was found with her throat cut in the bathtub of a home the couple once shared.

Marshfield police testified during a preliminary hearing that blood DNA that Campos had on his legs and in his car and a blood-covered knife in his vehicle matched the victim, 18-year-old Maisie McCullough. Authorities say McCullough had recently ended her relationship with Campos before she was killed.

WSAW-TV says Campos earlier pleaded guilty to first-degree intentional homicide.

  1. this young man should never be let out of prison….. From watching the shoe, ” evil lives here, ” if he is released, probably be alot more killings.. He’s nuts……

  2. He’s absolutely nuts and his ex didn’t deserve that violent death! Now, the baby has no mother. As far as Derricks mother though? Nothing but excuses for why she never did anything to get help BEFORE he even became a teenager! She is saying that she knew he was evil and he scared her from a young age. Where did she take him? Nowhere.

  3. I just don’t understand, she was going to be a nurse – how did she not have her son seen by a professional very early? She could have had him committed if necessary. I would have liked to know how he got on at school, there was no mention.

  4. I don’t understand – as someone who was going to be a nurse – how she didn’t have him seen by a professional, as soon as she started feeling something was ‘off’ about him. She could have had him committed even at that young age – and the murder may not have happened, her marriage may still be intact.

  5. I watched the Evil Lives Here and his mother should be in prison.

    you created that monster and should spend the same amount of time as he does.

    YOU ARE TO BLAME

  6. Mother enabled him his whole life and he was never wrong, according to her. She even gave Derek permission to rape a 15 year old girl (Maisie) by letting them live with her.

  7. I would love to have someone care about me so much that they are willing to kill me for love. If you think this is crazy o well. I would have been the perfect woman for him, I would have done everything he wanted. Obviously he loved her to death it may be twisted but that’s what true love is. Wish there was a way to find him I would love to pen pal him. Tried to find him online but its terribly hard to get ahold of anyone just a bunch of spam ads.

  8. What’s scary, is that she is now raising her grandson, Derek’s son. Let’s pray she don’t raise yet another cold-blooded killer. Per her own words, she did things that enabled him.
