MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Police say a wounded Wisconsin woman called 911 before she died and identified the man who shot her as her brother-in-law, a former sheriff's deputy.

A Fitchburg police affidavit says Kacee Tollefsbol called 911 around 1 p.m. Friday and said Andy Steele had shot her in the back. When police arrived at Steele's home they also found the body of his 39-year-old wife, Ashlee, who was fatally shot.

The affidavit in support of homicide charges against Steele says the 38-year-old Tollefsbol, of Lake Elmo, Minnesota, also told a detective at UW hospital that her brother-in-law had shot her. She died at the hospital.

Steele has been arrested but not charged in the shootings.
