McNeil (defendant) was arrested for an armed robbery that took place in West Allis. After being read his Miranda warnings, McNeil refused to answer any questions, though he did not ask for an attorney. Being represented by an attorney from the public defender’s office, McNeil was brought before a county clerk commissioner where bail was set and a preliminary examination was scheduled. While McNeil was still in jail, a detective came to question him about a murder, attempted murder and armed burglary that occurred in Caledonia and in which McNeil was a suspect. The detective came on three different occasions. Each time he read McNeil his Miranda warnings and each time McNeil waived them. McNeil eventually implicated himself in the Caledonia crimes.
