Gypsy Blancharde will be sent back to Missouri to face charges
Gypsy Blancharde will go back to Missouri to face charges in her mother's stabbing death. Blancharde appeared in Waukesha County Court Friday morning for an extradition hearing. The Judge signed the waiver and Missouri authorities have 30 days to come get her. Judge Michael Bohren asked Blancharde if she understood what she was doing. She said yes but conferred with her attorney. The Judge wasn't happy with that and wanted her to answer the questions. She told the judge she has a 3rd grade education and was taking anti-seizure medication in jail.
\"I then will find that your waiver of the extradition, challenge to extradition or contest it is a knowing and voluntarily and intelligent one,\" Judge Bohren said. \"I'll further find that you consent to be returned to the state of Missouri without waiting for any formal request for extradition from the governor of the state of Missouri.\"
Blancharde is facing felony charges in the stabbing death of her mother, Dee-Dee Blancharde. Gypsy's boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn of Big Bend, Wisconsin, admitted to stabbing Dee-Dee at Gypsy's request. This happened at the Blancharde's home in Missouri. After that, they left Missouri and came to Wisconsin. Authorities tracked them down after a Facebook post was traced to Big Bend. Godejohn will be back in court in late June.
