Josh House, 28, of Williston, has been charged with one count of manslaughter, a Class B felony, and one Class C felony count of reckless endangerment in the death of his wife.
His bond was set at $5,000, with 10 percent needed to post, at a hearing Monday afternoon in Northwest District court.
Williston police responded to a shooting inside a residence Saturday night that left Chantel House, 24, dead.
Williston Police Detective Cory Collings said the police received a report of a gunshot at 8:18 p.m. Saturday.
“There was a female that was hit,” Collings said.
Police responded to a residence at the 1000 block of Ninth Avenue Northwest. Chantel House was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Williston.
“She was pronounced dead a short time later,” Collings said.
The House family had been living in Williston for about a year, Collings said.
Collings said the incident is still under investigation. He declined to disclose where the victim had been shot or what had happened prior to the shooting.
Saturday’s incident was the second shooting to occur in less than two weeks in the city.
Early on the morning of May 10 Kenneth Moore, 25, of Boise, Idaho, was shot multiple times while sitting in a vehicle near the Williston State College campus.
Williston Police Detective David Peterson said an arrest warrant was issued on May 15. The warrant was issued for William Owens, 37, of Idaho. Peterson said the charges are criminal attempt to commit murder. The charge is a Class A felony.
“Information is pointing (to) that he (Owens) has left the area,” Peterson said.
Peterson declined comment on Owens’ relationship to Moore or a possible motive. He said Moore is still recovering from the shooting.
“I would say that Mr. Moore is in serious condition but he’s making progress,” Peterson said.
