MILWAUKEE (AP) — A man accused of firing into a Milwaukee home and killing a 13-year-old girl in her living room has abruptly pleaded guilty as a second day of testimony at his trial began.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports 26-year-old Isaac Barnes pleaded guilty Tuesday to first-degree reckless homicide, possession of a firearm by a felon and endangering safety by reckless use of a firearm. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped a charge of witness intimidation.
Assistant District Attorney Hanna Kolberg says prosecutors will recommend prison time but leave the sentence up to the judge. Sentencing is set for Aug. 23.
