An 81-year old man has been charged with domestic abuse assault while using a weapon in the fatal shooting in Merrill.
Plymouth County Sheriff Mike Van Otterloo says they got a 911 call from a woman Monday just before noon. He says the dispatcher heard a gunshot and the caller said someone had been injured by the shot. The sheriff says they arrested Thomas Knapp in the death of 51-year-old Kevin Juzek. Both lived in the same rural Plymouth County residence.
The State Medical Examiner has scheduled an autopsy on Juzek’s body today (Wednesday).
