BLACK RIVER FALLS, WI (WXOW)—A Black River Falls man is scheduled for trial for a June shooting death of the woman who lived with him.
Michael Harmon, 36, is charged with first degree intentional homicide as a repeater in the death of Angela Nelson.
During a court appearance Thursday, Judge Thomas Lister found there was enough evidence against Harmon to hold a trial. A date for his trial will be scheduled at a later date.
On June 9, authorities discovered Nelson's body in the apartment she shared with Harmon.
The criminal complaint said Harmon told investigators the shooting was the result of a gun misfiring. He fled the area following the shooting to Milwaukee, where he was arrested a week and a half later.
Harmon is being held in the Jackson County jail on a $500,000 cash bond.
A conviction on the homicide charge carries a life prison term.
