WATERLOO, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) A $1-million has been set for a Jefferson County man accused of killing the mother of his child. 32-year old Michael Henderson of Waterloo made an initial court appearance yesterday in a video feed from his jail cell. He's charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the shooting death of 28-year-old Heather Stewart of Clyman.
Henderson is due back in court June 25th, when a judge will decide if there's enough evidence to order a trial. According to prosecutors, the two traded text messages a day before authorities found her body in her car last month. The vehicle was parked in the lot of former grocery store in Watertown.
Investigators said Stewart was shot in the head, and Henderson's baseball cap was found near her body. Media reports said the two had a daughter together.
