Person of interest jailed in murder of Mazomanie woman

MAZOMANIE, WI (WTAQ) - A 39-year-old man is being held as a person of interest in the murder of a woman in Dane County.

Sheriff's deputies said Phillip Byrd was taken to the Rock County Jail in Janesville on unrelated charges. Authorities said they wanted to know more about his possible connection to the shooting death of 43-year-old Cheryl Gilberg.

She was found dead last Sunday night at her home in Mazomanie. A medical examiner said Gilberg was shot in the head, and her death was ruled a homicide.

Wednesday, Byrd appeared in Rock County Circuit Court on two misdemeanor charges of possessing methamphetamines and controlled substances -- plus felony and misdemeanor counts of bail jumping.

A judge ordered a $2,500 cash bond in that case, and he's back in court next Tuesday. Media reports say Byrd is from Janesville, but online court records list his address as Mansfield Massachusetts.
