Posted: Updated:

BELGRADE- A Bozeman man is jailed on the charge that he killed his wife in a shooting on Sunday. 

The Belgrade Police Department says they arrested Joseph Paul DeWise, 47, on Jan. 11 during a traffic stop. He's accused of shooting his wife, Lauren DeWise, on the morning of Jan. 7 at the residence she shared with a roommate in Belgrade. When police responded to a 911 report of a shooting, they found Lauren dead. Her roommate, Ashley Van Hemert, was found alive, but with a gunshot wound, broken limbs and a punctured lung. Van Hemert is hospitalized in critical condition and a YouCaring fundraiser is set up in her name.

DeWise's bail is set at $1 million. Police say the investigation is still active and more charges are "likely."
