Man accused of murder and attempted suicide

A woman is dead and an elderly man is in the hospital with a self-inflicted gunshot wound following an incident in Plymouth Township. Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden says his department was called to the residence shortly before 8:30 Wednesday morning.

The SWAT team searched the property and found, inside a shed, a female in her 50s dead of an apparent gunshot wound. Spoden says they located the suspect, in his 70s, in another shed, unconscious from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Spoden describes the two as acquaintances. The suspect was the property’s owner and it was his wife who called 911.

He is in critical condition at last word.
