MADISON, Wis. - The family of Andrew Steele, a former Dane County Sheriff's Deputy accused in a Fitchburg double homicide, says they are devastated following the shooting of their daughter-in-law and her sister.
William and Phyllis Steele, the parents of Andy Steele, released a statement to the media through Steele's attorney Wednesday.
"Our family is devastated in the wake of this tragedy," the Steele family said in the statement. "We feel the profound loss of all the loved ones involved. We ask that the media respect the privacy of the individuals close to these events in this time of grief."
Steele is accused of killing his wife Ashlee Steele and her sister-in-law Kacee Tollefsbol in a domestic incident in their Fitchburg home on Friday.
