FITCHBURG -- A Fitchburg police lieutenant says charges are likely early this week against a recently retired Dane County sheriff's deputy accused of killing his wife and sister-in-law.
 
Lt. Todd Stetzer says Andy Steele is being treated at a hospital for injuries consistent with a suicide attempt.
 
Fitchburg police say Steele is suspected of killing 39-year-old Ashlee Steele and 38-year-old Kacee Tollesfsbol, of Lake Elmo, Minn. on Friday.
 
The State Journal reports Fitchburg police say the women were found shot in the Steele home.
 
The 39-year-old deputy took a medical retirement this summer. Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney and other law enforcement colleagues recently did the ALS ice bucket challenge in support of Steele.
