Cov kev sib ntaus sib tua no tau coj Lueders pib koom cov rooj sib tham ntawm Wisconsin Kev ywj pheej Cov Ntaub Ntawv.

Induction lees paub "kev siv zog ntev thiab ruaj khov los khaws thiab tiv thaiv cov ntaub ntawv pub dawb txog lub xeev thiab tsoomfwv hauv nroog uas tseem ceeb rau cov pej xeem hauv kev ywj pheej" hauv lawv cov xeev.

Madison kws lij choj Christa O. Westerberg, tus lwm thawj coj ntawm Wisconsin FOIC, yog ib tus uas tau xaiv Lueders, 62, rau qhov khoom plig.
