HAYWARD, Wis. (AP) - A judge has set cash bond at $500,000 for a man accused of fatally shooting his wife in Sawyer County.

The 26-year-old man appeared in court Friday for a bond hearing. He’s being held on a possible charge of first-degree intentional homicide.

WDIO-TV reports Judge Gerald Wright gave prosecutors 10 days to file a criminal complaint against the suspect.

Authorities say the man called 911 on Oct. 5 to report that his wife had been shot in the head at a family cabin near Winter. She died at a hospital in Duluth, Minnesota.

At Friday’s hearing, attorneys argued whether the suspect should be allowed contact with his infant son. The judge did impose a no-contact order.

The suspect remained in jail Friday. His initial appearance is set for Oct. 28.
