WATERTOWN (AP) – Bail is set at $1 million in Jefferson County for the man charged with killing the mother of his child.
Thirty-two-year-old Michael Henderson of Waterloo appeared in court Wednesday through a video feed from the Jefferson County Jail. He’s charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 28-year-old Heather Stewart.
A criminal complaint says the two exchanged text messages the night before Stewart’s body was found in her car in a parking lot in Watertown. She had been shot in the head. The complaint says Henderson’s baseball cap was found near the body. WKOW-TV reports Henderson and Stewart had a young daughter.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled June 25.
