— The Janesville man suspected of shooting two people Thanksgiving Day will enter a plea to two charges of attempted first-degree intentional homicide in January after being bound over for trial.

Samuel Morrow, 25, appeared in Rock County Court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing, which began Monday. Court Commissioner Stephen Meyer said there was probable cause to believe Morrow committed a felony despite objections from Morrow's defense attorney, Walter Isaacson.


Attorneys on both sides argued whether bond should remain at $200,000 cash.


Isaacson said Morrow has no criminal record or history of missing court appearances. He said Morrow could post $10,000 cash bond.


Meyer disagreed, keeping bond at $200,000.


Morrow is accused of shooting Eileen Chan, 21, and Robert Bowman, 28, at 407 S. High St. Chan was admitted and released from Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center in Janesville. Bowman remained in fair condition Wednesday at Mercy.


Morrow is scheduled to be in court Jan. 11 to enter a plea to the charges.
