BARABOO, Wis. (AP) - A judge has committed a man accused of fatally shooting an Illinois woman on a Wisconsin interstate to the supervision of the state Department of Health Services for the next 40 years.

Sauk County Judge Michael Screnock found 21-year-old Zachary Hays guilty of first-degree reckless homicide and reckless endangerment, but not mentally responsible for the crimes. The State Journal (https://bit.ly/2s6axgR ) reports Screnock found the West Allis man was suffering from schizophrenia and believed he had uncovered a secret FBI base when he shot multiple rounds into a car on the interstate in Lake Delton in May 2016.

Forty-four-year-old Tracy Czaczkowkski, of Buffalo Grove, was struck and killed while riding in the car driven by her husband. Hays is also accused of killing his neighbor, Gabriel Sanchez, earlier that day. That case is pending.
