A Georgia man facing First Degree Homicide charges in Crawford County appeared in court Monday.

Jimmy McDaniel, 48, is being held on a $500,000 cash bond.

The Crawford Co. Sheriff says a 911 call was made Wednesday, Oct. 5th at about 12:20 in the morning from a residence on Velvet Lane in Bridgeport Township.

When officers arrived, they found the body of a woman lying on the ground outside of the residence. The woman was later identified as 53-year-old Linda L. Kline.

McDaniel was arrested last Thursday in the lobby of one of the local hotels in Prairie Du Chien. He was waiting for a ride to the La Crosse airport to fly back to Georgia.

McDaniel is due back in court for his initial appearance on October 17th.
