Court Denies Request For DNA Testing In 1993 Homicide Case

February 27, 2008

WKBT TV- La Crosse, WI

A court has denied a man's request for DNA testing that he says could prove his innocence in the death of a teenage girl.

Mark Rea was convicted of being party to first-degree intentional homicide and second-degree sexual assault in the 1993 death of Charlene Dvorak.

Prosecutors say Rea and David Newbury beat and sexually assaulted Dvorak. All three were high school students.

Rea and Newbury blamed each other and were both convicted.

The Wisconsin Innocence Project is seeking DNA testing on items collected from the scene and the hospital where Dvorak was treated to exonerate Rea.

But the Court of Appeals says the testing could not prove his innocence given the other evidence presented at trial.


  1. He deserves to stay where he is . Charlene was a beautiful young lady

  2. i hope they both rot in hell. I was 14 years old when she was murdered. I knew Charlene well, we dated (summer love) and I could always count on her for a smile a laugh a hug. I looked forward to her walking down the street, watching me play football, and of course her smile. Many years have gone by and I think of her often. I have seen her in my dreams, and heard her voice. I miss her, love her and treasure her.

    So,I will never forgive them for what they did, and I hope God lets them suffer. One wrote his favorite place is hell. I hope he finds it soon.

    I moved the weekend she was killed, but we talked the previous Tuesday. I never saw her walk down Bobolink Ave to go to spur gas station after that day. I hold her in my heart.

    To Charlene's Mom, Dad, and Brother Matt...I hope time has help you heal. Matt, you would probably know who this is,,,I hope you are doing well. wes

    1. The statement you made about never seeing her walk up bobolink ave to spur gas station made me get goosebumps and tears in my eyes I was one of her best friends when she died and I lived on bobolink and walked many many times to spur gas station with her... brought back allot of memories. I agree with you, they should both rot in hell (as I told them to their faces the day we could read statements to them in court). What they did is unforgivable PERIOD!!!



  5. I went to school with David Newbury. There is no doubt in my mind that he is responsible for everything he was charged with. I remember him being very manipulative, he was very much a bully, and a very violent animal.

    I do not know Mark Rea, but there is certainly a possibility that Newbury bullied him into participating. There might be room for reasonable doubt on the homicide charge and he might be cleared of the sexual assault charge - so I believe the DNA tests should be done.


    No, Mark Rea is guilty, too.

  7. Both of these scum bags deserve to rot in hell. Charlene was a beautiful and caring person, she could always make you smile no matter how upset or sad you may have been. She cared about everyone and never did anyone harm. I was also very close to Charlene, she was a very good friend to me and always made me feel good about myself. Matt meant so much to her and she would do anything she needed to to protect him. Every year May 16th is hard for me. I still think about her and have flashbacks of the pictures i saw of her on the news after the beating. I will and could NEVER understand how anyone who is human can do something like that to another human being. I remember my mom telling me over and over to leave the room, I refused to this day I wish Id have listened to her because that picture haunts me to this day. I went to Madison High school and was kind of upset that charlene wasnt there also. Charlene almost always had a smile on her face and those who knew her know that her smile could brighten up a room. She had a great sense of humor and was loved greatly by so many. I know I dont just speak for myself when I say that she is missed and always will be, that she will NEVER be forgotten, and that the two responsible for her murder deserve to die the way they made her die.

  8. anyone who has posted something can go to myspace as a memorial site has been put up in memory of charlene dvorak as she was my step sister really if these boys didn't do this then why were they convicted and why are they serving life sentences? people need to quit our family suffered so much over the loss of charlene and we still do everyday it hurts so much my babies grew up without knowing her and i miss her


  9. i went to school with mark, he is a sick and twisted bastard and deserves to rot and die in prison!

  10. no they intented to kill her after the rape. there is no being party to first-degree intentional homicide. it was there plan after david raped her that is why mark andrew rea wants dna testing. but he is the one that killed her kicked her in the face smashed her with a board there is ur intent. no wittness went to school bragged about what happen.most thought he was joking.because he is warpped like that... only if i know what he was going to do that day.i would have.... lets just say char. would still be here

  11. Mark rea is a dirt bag.I saw him in school the morning after the murder.
    He was laughing and joking around like he didnt have a care in the world. I think the cops picked him up that afternoon. The guy is a psychopath I have no doubt that he's guilty.

  13. Today, I went to the beach with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  53. I sat next to her in 6th grade and remember her straight hair smart grades and funny laugh. She kept me in line and kept me out of trouble. If those sick bastards ever get out they'll wish they hadnt. And I keep up on a weekly basis.

  54. I grew up with David Newbury and was a friend of his as a kid. I never saw him once harm anyone or do anything disturbing that would make me believe he was a killer. I do feel sorry for the tragic loss of the victim and for her family that had to endure the pain of losing a child especially in the manner it happened, but in my opinion David was not the brains or the instigating factor in this case and should not have been given life in prison.

  55. They are both guilty, Charlene and I used to skip school at Pulaski hs to smoke cigarettes all around Pulaski hs. The day Charlene was murdered I pretended to be sick and stayed home from school, I should have been with her. Not sure if her murder would or wouldn't have occurred if I was with her, maybe I would have been murdered too. Later that night her picture popped up on the news and my heart dropped, I felt like thanking God I was still alive but also grieving for my friend. I'm glad these scumbags are still in prison.
