SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - A Sheboygan woman and her daughter are both charged with aiding a felon, for allegedly hiding a gun that killed a man almost two months ago.
Bond was set Thursday at $7,500 for 41-year-old Carol Gilligan. A $5,000 bond was set for 18-year-old Lydia Smith. Both are due back in court next Wednesday, when a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.
Brandon Davis was shot to death June 16th in a Sheboygan house where the two women lived at the time.
Prosecutors said they were in another room when four men started arguing, and a gun went off. Police said the women told inconsistent stories about where they were at the time, and they claimed they didn’t know the men.
Smith said Ronnie Polk threatened to harm her if she didn’t hide the murder weapon. An informant told officers that Smith had tried to sell the weapon.
The 27-year-old Polk is charged with reckless homicide and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. The judge and the lawyers will review the status of the case during a conference on August 22nd.
