Thomas Routt Jr., 57, has been charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide for killing Gina Weingart, 37, and her husband, Emerson Weingart, 33, during a robbery at a sports bar in Wisconsin.

Routt admitted to netting less than $150 from the heist. He brandished a handgun, shot Gina Weingart, and later confessed to the crime.

“Routt brandished a handgun and pointed it at Gina, the bartender, and ordered them not to move. The eyewitness said they instinctively got up off their barstool and Routt pointed the gun at the eyewitness and ordered the eyewitness not to move,” the police statement read.

Routt, a felon with a criminal history, was previously imprisoned for arson and burglary.

The victims’ family expressed devastation and criticized the parole system for releasing Routt.

“Our families have been devastated by this senseless act of violence,” Weingart’s father Jeff Weingart said.

“Please recall that the system that convicted and incarcerated him failed,” Jeff later said.

“Finally, the press needs to do its job and use all its investigatory resources to find out why Tony Evers administration paroled this monster who committed this brazen act that took the life of two special, beautiful, loving people,” Weingart said.
