CRIME AND COURT ROUNDUP: State Supreme Court to decide whether cellphone data can be used to track murder suspects
Can police use cellphone data to track down murder suspects? The Wisconsin Supreme Court is expected to answer that question today. The justices are scheduled to rule on a pair of homicide cases from Milwaukee and Kenosha counties, in which police obtained data from cellphone providers to find and arrest the suspects. Milwaukee Police found Bobby Tate in his mother's apartment. He said detectives did not have enough evidence to justify a warrant they obtained to track his cellphone.
