WAUNAKEE, Wis. (AP) — A 74-year-old man is jailed on suspicion he shot and killed a neighbor in his apartment complex in Waunakee.
Police were called to the complex Friday evening about a person being shot and found the victim in her apartment. Police say she was shot in the chest and was flown to UW Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The victim is identified as 54-year-old Julie Virginia Anderson of Waunakee.
