BILLINGS, Mont. -

A Billings man accused of fatally shooting his wife's friend is being held on $750,000 bond.
    
Judge Larry Herman set the bond Monday for 27-year-old Richard Reinert, who has been charged with deliberate homicide.
    
Authorities identified the victim as 25-year-old Jessica Stephenson of Joliet.
    
Assistant coroner Chad Fehr says Stephenson died from multiple gunshot wounds.
    
The Billings Gazette reports Saturday's shooting was recorded in a 911 call.
    
The woman caller told dispatchers she was helping a friend bring her drunk husband home after he had pointed a gun at himself.
    
An affidavit says several gunshots could be heard during the call and the phone was dropped.
    
Another woman's voice is then heard saying, "You shot her, what are you doing?"
    
A male voice answers, "You made me do this."
