MADISON, Wis. -- A University of Wisconsin-Madison student has been arrested in connection with the death of his mother in Lincoln County in June.
Chase Boruch, 24, was taken into custody Monday evening at his apartment in the 300 block of West Washington Avenue in Madison. Madison police executed the arrest warrant for Lincoln County on a first-degree intentional homicide charge.
"What I heard, the guy was pretty nice and quiet, but I never saw the guy. It was just weird because it's a very quiet place, and I didn't expect to have so much action in one night," said neighbor Jess Adelio.
On June 6, Boruch called 911 after the car he and his 63-year-old mother were in became submerged in Moraine Lake in the central part of the state. He told dispatchers he was able to free himself from the car, but that his mother, Sally Pergolski, of Wausau, was still inside the vehicle. He told authorities that he was able to escape the vehicle, but his mother wasn't.
