MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Madison man accused of fatally shooting a former grocery store co-worker has been ordered to stand trial.
Twenty-six-year-old Christopher O’Kroley waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Dane County Circuit Court.
A criminal complaint says O’Kroley blames Caroline Nosal for getting him fired at Metro Market. The complaint says the 24-year-old Stoughton woman rebuffed O’Kroley’s advances and complained to management that he was harassing her. Nosal was fatally shot in the parking lot of the store on Feb. 2.
O’Kroley is also accused of shooting at a Madison police officer who returned fire before O’Kroley was arrested. He’s charged with first-degree intentional homicide and reckless endangerment. He will enter pleas to the charges against him when an arraignment is scheduled.
