Beloit area man charged with killing neighbor

BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - A Beloit area man is due in court Tuesday afternoon for allegedly killing his neighbor before turning the gun on himself.

75-year-old Daniel Bellard was treated at UW Hospital in Madison since the shootings on February 6th. He was released Monday, and was taken by ambulance to the Rock County Jail’s medical unit.

Prosecutors charged him Tuesday morning with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 59-year-old Christine Gestrich.

Bellard was arrested soon after the incident, while he was under armed guard at the Madison hospital.

Gestrich was found dead in a barn. Bellard was found wounded in another out-building on his property, west of Beloit in the town of Plymouth.
