MAUSTON, Wis. (AP) - A Necedah woman charged with killing a 24-year-old man says he asked her to shoot him.

Twenty-one-year-old Natalie Murphy is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the shooting death of Andrew Dammen. She’s being held on $250,000 cash bond in Juneau County.

A sheriff’s deputy responded to an apartment in the village of Necedah early Thursday. A criminal complaint says Murphy screamed “he’s dead, he’s dead” and directed the deputy to a bedroom. Daily Tribune Media (https://wrtnews.co/1MkdYoF ) reports Dammen was taken to Mile Bluff Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The complaint says a lieutenant heard Murphy say she shot Dammen because he told her to shoot him.

Murphy is due back in court March 18. Her defense attorney, Stephen Mays, did not immediately return a call for comment.
