MADISON, Wis. — Prosecutors are pursuing domestic abuse and repeat offender modifiers for a man being charged in the murder of a Madison woman earlier this year.

Tamas Smith, 52, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide. Online court records show prosecutors are pursuing domestic abuse and repeat offender modifiers for the charge.

Madison police responded to a shooting in the 1700 block of Onsgard Road early on the Fourth of July. When officers arrived, they found a 31-year-old woman had been shot. She was taken to a local hospital in serious condition where she later died from her injuries.

The woman has since been identified as 31-year-old Keairra C. Fields.

Police said they took a suspect into custody shortly after the shooting, according to an incident report.

During his arraignment last month, Smith pleaded not guilty to the homicide charge. He’s currently being held on a $1 million cash bond. Court officials also ordered Smith not to leave Dane County without the court’s approval, not possess any dangerous weapons and avoid contact with the victim’s family.

Smith’s next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 30 at 7 a.m.
