Husband Held Following Death of Police Officer

Benjamin Sebena taken into custody in connection with the shooting death of his wife in Wauwatosa; couple lived in Menomonee Falls.

The husband of slain Wauwatosa police officer Jennifer Sebena has been taken into custody following his wife's death, according to a Wauwatosa police report.

Reports do not indicate if Benjamin Sebena has been arrested for the slaying and police are not commenting further. The couple lived on Ranch Road in Menomonee Falls.

Two Wauwatosa police officers and a state Department of Criminal Investigation agent transported Sebena from the Wauwatosa Police Department to the West Allis Police Department on Christmas Day. They turned Sebena over to a West Allis police sergeant at 8:01 p.m., according to a Wauwatosa police report. The sergeant locked Sebena in a cell without incident.

A West Allis police officer said just before 11:30 a.m. Wednesday that the department did not have anyone in lockup at this time.

Jennifer Sebena, 30, died after she was struck by multiple gunshots early Christmas Eve morning. According to a police report, the last contact the department had with her was at 3:29 a.m.

Some time after that, dispatchers attempted to contact her and she did not respond. She was found at 4:38 a.m. on the north side of the Wauwatosa Fire Station No. 1, 1601 Underwood Ave.
