KENOSHA (WITI) -- A Kenosha man could face life in prison after a day-long standoff with police which resulted in an explosive breach and the discovery of a woman who was shot to death.
38-year-old Chester Mass admits to shooting Heather Adamski on December 4th, but claims it was an accident. Mass told authorities he and Adamski had sex and were playing with a gun when he accidentally shot her in the head.
On Thursday, December 19th Mass was charged with first degree intentional homicide and possession of a firearm by a felon. Mass's attorney asked for a lenient bail, which was denied. The judge set bail at $500,000.
According to a criminal complaint, on December 4th Mass woke his brother, Justin Mass, and told him he shot Adamski. Mass then asked his brother to help him get rid of her body.
Justin Mass said he feared for his safety after allegedly seeing a gun in his brother's hand. Justin, however, was able to run out of the house and call 911.
Court documents also show Mass told Adamski he had another woman at the house and if she didn't come home he would throw out her belongings.
Both Adamski's daughter and a friend told law enforcement she and Mass had a rocky relationship. They also claim Mass made death threats toward Adamski.
