A Helena-area woman is set to appear in court Monday in connection with a suspected homicide reported last week.

32-year-old Serena Kilseimer is charged with deliberate homicide. Sgt. Shane Hildenstab of the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office confirmed she was arrested in connection with the death of 56-year-old Shane White.

Authorities found White’s body Wednesday in the area of Cave Gulch Road, north of Canyon Ferry Lake. Sheriff Leo Dutton reported he died of blunt force trauma, and that he also had sharp force injuries.

Kilseimer is scheduled to make an initial appearance in Lewis and Clark County Justice Court Monday afternoon. The charging documents in her case were not yet available Monday morning.
