Anderson is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, a Class A felony that carries a life sentence if convicted. Anderson is also charged with crimes of hiding a corpse and stalking.
Det. Phillip Brietchaft said he and another detective were dispatched to Walmart in Saukville on May 21, 2020 to review store security footage from the morning of May 18, 2020 showing Anderson’s arrival and departure. Video footage released for court showed Anderson arriving at Walmart in his work van around 8:15 a.m.
Video footage also showed Anderson shopping for about 20 minutes before using the self-checkout system for a handful of items.

The van also had parts of the interior carpeting removed.
Store manager Peter Wertschnig testified about Anderson’s receipt for his May 18 purchase. Wertschnig said Anderson purchased two boxes of 13-gallon garbage bags, two packs of large gloves, Q-tips and two containers of Clorox wipes, among other items.

From 2012 to 2020, Beacham said the kids mostly lived with her while Anderson lived “everywhere,” including her home in Mequon. Beacham said he often travels for work and visits on weekends.
Beacham said she broke up with Anderson in December 2019 and he didn’t take it well. Although she began to develop a relationship with Gutierrez, whom she met through Facebook, Beacham said Anderson continued to pursue her until the spring of 2020 and began stalking, following, and stalking her. to spy.
Beacham testified Monday that Anderson found out about her relationship with Gutierrez in April, though she said she didn’t tell him anything about Gutierrez.
Beacham also said she suspected Anderson was watching her and even drove through Gutierrez’s vehicle in the middle of the night while she was staying with him.
In May 2020, Beacham said that Gutierrez would text her every morning and every evening “without fail” and when she stopped hearing from him on the phone or text after the night of May 17, 2020, she broke down. worried and went to her apartment two days later.
“It was weird that his phone was off and not answering or not answering at all,” Beacham said, adding that she decided to visit his apartment on May 19, 2020.
When she arrived at her apartment, she got out of her vehicle and walked towards the screen door which had been left open. Beacham said she called his name several times, but Gutierrez did not respond.
“I felt very sick,” Beacham said. “I remember being very scared.”
When Beacham looked into the apartment through the screen door, she said she saw “red blood, just a lot of brownish-reddish blood on the floor.”
“The apartment looked different,” she added. “It looked like furniture had been moved. … I panicked.
Beacham said she called 911 and told them “what I knew.”
Beacham said she told a Kenosha police officer at the scene about some concerns she had about Anderson.
On Tuesday, Beacham expanded on her relationship with Gutierrez and how he said he wanted to protect her from Anderson in their texts.
“We had only been together for a few months but we talked a lot and we had a really good connection and I really trusted him and felt like he really wanted to protect me,” Beacham said in tears. .
The trial is now in its third week before Judge Bruce Schroeder and is expected to last at least another week.
The jury is made up of eight women and five men, including a substitute.
Anderson is being held on $750,000 cash bond at the Kenosha County Jail. He has been in custody since shortly after Gutierrez disappeared, initially accused of harassment.
The homicide charge was added in December 2020 after an investigation found evidence that Anderson may have moved Gutierrez’s corpse in his van to another location.
The prosecution is led by District Attorney Michael Graveley, who throughout the trial maintained that Anderson killed Gutierrez out of jealousy and obsession with his ex-girlfriend.
Defense attorney Nicole Muller argued Kenosha police failed to investigate other possible suspects and prematurely focused on Anderson based on Beacham’s claims.
