Wisconsin man to fight extradition on manslaughter

By: Associated Press//June 24, 2011

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin man says he’ll fight extradition to Texas on a manslaughter charge that resulted from a motel shooting.

According to a criminal complaint, Lance Mueller and some co-workers were drinking at the MCM Elegante Hotel in Beaumont last September when Mueller loaded a pistol he had brought to the room and fired the gun.

The bullet went through two walls and fatally struck 55-year-old Gregory Fleniken, who was in the adjacent room. The business executive from Lafayette, La., was found dead the next morning. Mueller told a co-worker he had talked to police after learning about the death, but didn’t admit to the shooting.

The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reports a Chippewa County judge set bond at $75,000 for Mueller Thursday.
