KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — A man accused of a fatal shooting during a drug transaction in Kenosha County has pleaded guilty to felony charges.
Shawn Amelio Sr. pleaded guilty on Tuesday in the shooting death of 19-year-old Khaled Alchaar outside a Pleasant Prairie restaurant last May.
Prosecutors said Amelio drove to the restaurant with his 19-year-old daughter, who had arranged to meet Alchaar in the parking lot to sell him marijuana.
The Amelios claimed Alchaar pulled a gun and attempted to rob them. The Kenosha News reports Amelio then shot Alchaar.
The 45-year-old Kenosha man has pleaded guilty to second-degree reckless homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety and conspiracy to deliver marijuana.
Christina Amelio pleaded guilty Tuesday to two charges related to dealing marijuana.
The two are scheduled to be sentenced on April 13.
