Neighbor, 75, arrested in Rock Co. shooting death
Rock County sheriff's authorities have arrested a 75-year-old man in the shooting death last week of a woman who was his neighbor.
The sheriff's office says the man was arrested Monday on suspicion of first-degree intentional homicide. He remains under guard in stable condition at UW Hospital in Madison.
Officers were called to a rural property Wednesday morning and found 59-year-old Christine Gestrich dead in a barn and the suspect with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in another outbuilding on the property.
The sheriff's office says the man is the only suspect in the shooting.
