A Wisconsin man has been charged with stalking Jewel at the North Texas ranch she shares with her rodeo-riding husband. Online records show 50-year-old Michael Lawrance Kozelka is in the Erath County Jail in Stephenville, 95 miles southwest of Dallas. Bond is set at $30,000.

Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant didn't return calls from The Associated Press. The Stephenville Empire-Tribune cites an arrest report saying Kozelka was found Sept. 14 on the 2,000-acre ranch owned by the singer-songwriter's husband, rodeo champion Ty Murray. The landowner confronted Kozelka and warned him not to return. The next day, last Tuesday, a knife-wielding Kozelka allegedly was found at the main ranchhouse.

An Erath County Jail official says Kozelka is charged with stalking. If convicted of the third-degree felony, he could get up to 10 years in prison.
