PLOVER, WI (WTAQ) - A man killed after busting into the home of a Portage County sheriff's detective in Plover was identified Monday as 30-year-old Charles Jameson of Stevens Point.  

Plover Police said detective Anthony Gischia returned home with another person early Saturday, when the intruder confronted them. Jameson was then shot and killed during a scuffle.  

Officials said the intruder knew Gischia and his companion. Police did not say who fired the fatal shot. That information will apparently come after the state Justice Department completes its investigation.  

The state was brought in under a new law signed less than a month ago, which requires officer-involved deaths to be probed by an outside agency.  

The Plover death was among two during the weekend in which state criminal agents were called to investigate. The other one happened early Sunday, when Madison Police killed a woman who reportedly refused to do what officers told her to do.
