MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Police in Wisconsin say that before she died, a wounded woman called 911 and identified the person who shot her as her brother-in-law, who had been a sheriff's deputy.

A police affidavit obtained Tuesday says Kacee Tollefsbol called 911 around 1 p.m. Friday and said Andy Steele had shot her in the back. When police arrived at Steele's home in the Madison suburb of Fitchburg they also found the body of his 39-year-old wife, Ashlee Steele, who had also been fatally shot.

The affidavit says the 38-year-old Tollefsbol, of Lake Elmo, Minnesota, also told a detective that Andy Steele had shot her before she died at UW hospital.

Steele was arrested but hasn't been charged.
