Trial ordered for Green Bay man accused in fatal shooting

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Green Bay man has been ordered to stand trial in the fatal shooting of an acquaintance last year.

Twenty-eight-year-old Antwon Powell is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the Dec. 3 death of David Shorter.

WLUK-TV reports Powell was ordered to stand trial after an investigator testified at the preliminary hearing Wednesday. Arraignment is scheduled for June 17.

Prosecutors say Powell had accused the 32-year-old victim of breaking into his house and stealing money and marijuana earlier that day.

According to a criminal complaint, the two argued by phone throughout the day until that night when Powell went to Shorter’s house and shot him as he stepped outside for a cigarette.

Powell remains in jail. A telephone message left for his attorney for comment was not immediately returned Wednesday.
