• Man held without bail in wife's fatal beating


    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A judge has ordered that a man accused of fatally beating his wife should be held without bail.
    Christopher Haag, 38, faces second-degree murder charges in the death of 45-year-old Rose Haag. Authorities said she was beaten to death early Monday.
    According to an arrest report, Haag called his mother and drug dealer before dialing 911 after the beating at the Bristol Bay condominiums.

    Authorities said Haag called 911 around 1 a.m. Monday, saying his wife was unresponsive.

    "I think my wife is dead," Haag said in the 911 call.

    In the eight-minute call, Haag claimed someone beat his wife to death while he was asleep in their apartment.

    Investigators told WFTV there were inconsistencies in Haag's story and they believe he killed his wife.

    Officers said Rose Haag received blunt-force trauma to her body and was deceased when authorities arrived.

    County Judge Steve Henderson said that because Haag violated his DUI probation by drinking the night of the killing, he will be held in jail.
