WAUPACA, Wis. (WSAU-Wheeler News Service) - If Glendon Gouker ever gets out of prison in Oklahoma, he’ll have to serve 25 more years in Wisconsin for raping a Waupaca County woman in 1990 when she was 20.
The 42-year-old Gouker was sentenced Friday, after he struck a plea deal in March that convicted him of first-degree sexual assault. He was charged in late January, around the time when authorities said Gouker was a person-of-interest in the killings of Tanna Togstad and Tim Mumbrue in 1992 in Weyauwega.
The sexual assault occurred two years before that at a park in Iola, where Gouker told the victim quote, “I’m just doing my job – I got paid to do this.” State Attorney General J-B Van Hollen said officers were pursuing the double-murders as a cold case when they found new D-N-A evidence about the Iola rape.
Gouker has lived in Oklahoma in recent years. He’s serving four life terms plus 70 years, with no chance for parole, for crimes he committed in that state. Those crimes included murder, rape, kidnapping, sodomy, weapons, and drug charges. He also remains a suspect in a Waupaca County double homicide case from 1992.
