A west central Wisconsin man has been ordered to stand trial for allegedly killing a woman who lived with him.  

37-year-old Michael Harmon of Black River Falls is charged in Jackson County with first-degree intentional homicide as a repeat offender.  He's accused of shooting 34-year-old Angela Harmon, who was found dead in the bathtub of their apartment on June ninth.  Yesterday, a judge ruled that there was enough evidence to order a trial.  Harmon told police that Angela took his gun from him, and waved it in his face.  He said a struggle then took place, when the gun went off and she died.  A medical examiner said there's no way Angela Harmon was shot at close range, based on the area of the bullet wound.  Authorities said Michael Harmon left the area after the shooting, and was later arrested in Milwaukee.  He's scheduled to enter a plea at his next court appearance.  A date for that has not been set.  Harmon remains jailed under a half-million-dollar bond.
