No contest plea to fatal Eagle River shooting

EAGLE RIVER, Wis. (AP) — A man accused in a fatal shooting at an Eagle River home has reached an agreement with prosecutors.

WJFW-TV reports Jeremiah Solis entered a no-contest plea to negligent handling of a dangerous weapon and another charge was dropped in Vilas County Circuit Court on Thursday.

Solis is accused in the death of 20-year-old Connor Stephens in September 2017. Solis says he was showing a gun to some friends when it went off and hit Stephens.

He is faced with up to 10 years in prison when he’s sentenced in June.
