Christopher Gish pleads guilty in murder of Margeret Litwicki

MILWAUKEE -- Christopher Gish reached a plea deal in the death of his girlfriend, Margaret Litwicki on Monday, November 19th. Gish pleaded guilty to an amended charge of first-degree reckless homicide. He was originally charged with first-degree intentional homicide.

Gish fatally stabbed Litwicki in her Greenfield home on Saturday, July 14th. Officials say two of Litwicki’s three children, boys, ages eight and six were in the home, along with two adults. Police do not believe any of them witnessed the incident.

According to the criminal complaint, Gish admitted to police that he stabbed Litwicki in the chest numerous times after he said she threatened to take the kids away. The report states that Gish told police: “I never wanted to kill her,” but later said, “You know what? I don’t feel bad that I did it. I honestly don’t for some #$@&ing oddball reason dude…”

Gish also told police he believed Litwicki was having an affair with a man named Mikey, and said he regrets not being able to get to him. After stabbing Litwicki to death, Gish tells police he said, “I hope it was worth it…”

Gish is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday, January 4th.
