Shooting victim played dead so gunman would leave


MINERAL POINT, Wis. (AP) -- A rural Mineral Point man survived by playing dead after an attacker shot him and killed his brother.

  A criminal complaint filed in Iowa County says Charles Witzel Jr. went to his ex-girlfriend's home Nov. 6, hid in the basement and waited for her current boyfriend, Casey Finley, to come home.

  When he did, Witzel shot him and his brother.

  Craig Finley died after a bullet penetrated his aorta.

  The complaint says Casey Finley was shot twice in the back and once in the head.

  Casey Finley told police he pretended he was dead after the gunman told him, "I will wait here until you die."

  Casey Finley later went to a neighbor's house for help.

  Witzel also is accused of killing a Cross Plains man his ex-girlfriend had an affair with.
