“Whether the murder was premeditated or not, Landske’s behavior towards Page was methodical and deliberate,” the opinion says.

At a press conference days after Page’s 2018 homicide, Hobart Police said Landske told investigators he was “slowly losing his marbles,” but police did not believe he was in pain. of dementia.
“He didn’t seem to have a mental incapacity for me,” so-Lt. James Gonzales told reporters.
“In my opinion, Bill Landske is a cowardly murderer who left Judge Page’s family and friends and the Landske family to face an emotional path of destruction,” Gonzales said.

Landske then agreed to a settlement in the civil lawsuit, court records show.
