JANESVILLE, Wis. (WTAQ) - A $1 million bond has been set for a Janesville motorcyclist accused of killing a Jeep passenger in an apparent act of road rage.
44-year-old James Humphrey was charged Tuesday with first-degree reckless homicide in the death of 30-year-old Samuel Aegerter last Friday night. Police said the two men exchanged words at a five-way intersection in downtown Janesville.
And then two motorcycles followed the Jeep for a couple blocks before Humphrey allegedly shot Aegerter in the neck through the back window of the Jeep. Two other men in the Jeep escaped injury.
Humphrey is due back in court Wednesday, when his lawyer is expected to try and reduce his million-dollar bond.
