A Necedah woman is facing a first degree intentional homicide charge.

Natalie Murphy, 21,  is charged in the  Feb. 12 shooting death of 24-year-old Andrew Dammen, also of Necedah. The shooting took place at a Necedah residence in the early morning hours.

A criminal complaint says Murphy screamed “He’s dead, he’s dead” and directed a Juneau County sheriff’s deputy to a bedroom.

According to Juneau County Sheriff Brent Oleson, Dammen was transported to Hess Memorial Hospital in Mauston, where he was later pronounced dead from his injury.

The complaint says a lieutenant heard Murphy say she shot Dammen because he told her to shoot him.

Online court records show a $250,000 cash bond was set for Murphy and she is not to possess any firearms. She is also to maintain absolute sobriety and have no contact with Dammen’s family, except for supervised contact with her daughter.

Murphy could face a sentence of life in prison if convicted. She is due back in court March 18.
