GUILTY: Mendez convicted in 1982 cold case murder
Thirty-seven years and two days after Barbara Mendez was fatally bludgeoned while wrapping up her workday at the former Park City Credit Union in Minocqua her husband, Robin "Bob" Mendez, was convicted of delivering the fatal blows.

In a 90-minute oral ruling Tuesday afternoon, Marathon County Circuit Judge Jill Falstad found the Oneida County district attorney's office had proven beyond a reasonable doubt it was the victim's husband, and not a robber, who struck Barbara from behind on April 28, 1982.

Mendez, now 70, was charged with first degree murder in February 2018 after the Oneida County detective bureau, with assistance from the television show "Cold Justice" reopened the unsolved case.
