Update: The Racine County Sheriff’s Department has released the names of the man and woman involved in the early-morning shooting, and charged the wife with attempted second intentional degree homicide.

According to the updated release, witnesses said Phyllis Madeja and her husband, Konrad, got into a verbal and physical argument. Phyllis allegedly shot Konrad, who was taken by Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital.

He is expected to recover. His wife was treated for minor injuries at Wheaton Franciscan Hospital in Racine and released. She was then arrested and charged, and taken to the Racine County Jail, where she is being held on a $50,000 cash bond.
