Hawkins man pleads not guilty to killing his wife

by

RUSK COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A northwest Wisconsin man has pleaded not guilty to shooting his wife to death.

A Rusk County judge ruled Thursday that there’s enough evidence to put 66-year-old Donald Lazar of Hawkins on trial for first-degree intentional homicide.

Prosecutors said Lazar shot his wife Darlene multiple times on December 30th. He told officers that she was on the phone with police at the time – and he pointed his 22-caliber rifle at her because he only wanted to scare her.

Police said Lazar then re-loaded the weapon and shot her in the head.

Attorneys in the case are scheduled to meet with the judge by phone on January 25th, and a trial date could be set at that time. For now, Lazar is jailed under a half-million dollar bond.
