Girlfriend charged in death of Necedah man

NECEDAH, Wis. (AP) — The girlfriend of a man found dead in his Necedah home has been charged with killing him.

Twenty-seven-year-old Crystal Pharis was charged Monday in Juneau County with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of Jason Dailey. Pharis is also charged with hiding a corpse and neglecting her 2-month-old baby.

When Dailey failed to show up for work, a sheriff’s deputy went to his home Nov. 12 to check on him. A criminal complaint says Dailey’s body was found under blankets next to his bed and that he had suffered blunt force trauma.

It says Pharis was found unresponsive and on top of her baby. Both were taken to the hospital. WISC-TV reports the complaint says a man staying at the home told investigators Pharis struck Dailey on Saturday after she accused him of cheating on her.
