Marshfield police testified during a preliminary hearing that blood DNA that Campos had on his legs and in his car and a blood-covered knife in his vehicle matched the victim, 18-year-old Maisie McCullough. Authorities say McCullough had recently ended her relationship with Campos before she was killed.
