According to a Wisconsin sheriff’s department, Carl J. McDaniel shot his wife, then provided first aid for her wound and then called 911. McDaniel was charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of his wife September 24, 2007 in their home. He faces life in prison if convicted.
Detective Margaret Herrmann said McDaniel acknowledge shooting his wife with a shotgun. "He said he loaded it six days prior."
McDaniel allegedly told Herrmann his wife was seated on the couch eating dinner and the gun was leaning on the fireplace. He said he picked up the shotgun and carried it back to the couch as he wanted his wife to look at the sight on the gun, but she wanted to finish eating and the two argued about that.
