WESTBORO, WI (WTAQ) - A Taylor County sheriff's deputy faces a long recovery, after he was sent home from a hospital Sunday.
Chad Kowalczyk was shot 8 days ago while responding to a domestic call near Westboro. He suffered stomach and arm wounds, and his uncle -- Chippewa County Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk -- expects Chad to make a full recovery and return to the beat someday.
27-year-old Alexander Schneider is in jail under a $1 million bond. Charges were still pending against Schneider at last word.
Authorities said he violated a court order to stay away from an underage girl with whom he was having sex.
