Man pleads not guilty to killing wife

LADYSMITH, Wis. (AP) - A man accused of fatally shooting his wife has pleaded not guilty in Rusk County Circuit Court.

Sixty-6-year-old Donald Lazar is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the Dec. 30 death of his wife, Darlene. Lazar told police he fired a gun, thinking it wasn't loaded, and shot his wife while she was on the phone with police. Prosecutors say he reloaded the rifle and shot her in the head.

The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram says Lazar is being held on $500,000 cash bond.
