Northern Iowa man says he’s not guilty in wife’s murder

CRESCO, IOWA – A Northern Iowa man is facing major legal troubles after police say he murdered his wife.

On March 1, 2018, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation was asked to assist the Cresco Police Department with a death investigation. The Cresco Police Department had been called to the area of 700 S. Elm Street #32 at about 1:30 AM regarding a shots fired call. Officers arrived and located a subject barricaded in a residence near this location. The Cresco Police Department and Iowa State Patrol negotiated with this individual for several hours and were able to take him into custody without incident. Officers then located the deceased individual inside the residence.

The Iowa Division of Investigation identified the subjects involved in the incident in Cresco, Iowa, on March 1st, 2018. Upon arrival of police that morning, officers were confronted by Brian Fullhart, age 34, at the residence who was uncooperative with officers and threatening to shoot officers. Fullhart was eventually taken into custody at 6:45 AM. Officers then entered the residence and located the body of a deceased female. That female was later identified as Fullhart’s wife, Zoanne Fullhart, age 34, of Decorah, Iowa.

Brian Fullhart has been arrested and charged with Murder in the First Degree and Going Armed with Intent. Fullhart is currently in custody at the Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Department in Decorah, Iowa.

Fullhart has entered a not-guilty plea in the case.
