Killed – Fernando Winters (Milwaukee, WI)

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) – A Milwaukee father and son are charged in the murder of a man who refused to hand over $50 in a New Year’s Eve robbery attempt.

45-year-old Eric Hill was being held under a quarter-million dollar bond on charges of first-degree intentional homicide and attempted armed robbery. 25-year-old Deonte Hill is charged with felony murder, bail jumping, and illegally possessing a gun as a convicted felon. He’s under a $150,000 bond.

According to prosecutors, both Hills and 36-year-old Fernando Winters were at a northwest side hotel to collect money that a woman owed them. Eric Hill then allegedly tried robbing Winters of his $50 just outside the hotel. Prosecutors said Hill ended up shooting Winters twice, and never got his money.

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — He’s one of two people (a father and son) charged in connection with the final homicide of 2013, and now, he’s been sentenced in the case against him.

46-year-old Eric Hill faced two felony charges in the case: first degree intentional homicide and armed robbery.

Eric Hill on Thursday, October 9th was sentenced to life in prison on the first degree intentional homicide (with credit for 275 days served). He will be eligible for extended supervision after 32 years (in 2046).

On the armed robbery charge, Eric Hill was sentenced to 12 years in prison and seven years of extended supervision, to be served concurrently.

A criminal complaint filed against these two says police were dispatched to the area of 72nd and W. Appleton Avenue on the evening of December 31st. There, they spoke with Fernando Winters, who told them he had been shot in the chest by someone he had never seen before following an attempted robbery as he was walking home.

Killed – Reggie Evans (Milwaukee, WI)

Reggie Evans1

A 28-year-old man was arrested Friday night in connection with the fatal shooting of a cook inside an east side George Webb restaurant, police said.

The man is suspected of killing Reginald T. Evans, 21, about 2 a.m. Friday at the restaurant at 2935 N. Oakland Ave., according to a Milwaukee Police Department news release.

Police say Evans was attempting to assist a beleaguered waitress who was dealing with a crowd of rowdy patrons. A member of the group left the restaurant, returned with a handgun and shot Evans in the chest.

28-year-old Delorean Bryson has been charged in the incident — and FOX6 News has learned he is a convicted felon — and therefore should have never had a gun.

Bryson is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and possession of a firearm by a felon in the case.

Three other people are also charged in connection with this case. Oliver Kennedy faces a felony charge of harboring or aiding a felon. Joycelyn Long and Schalanda Long are each charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

Killed – Darold Vanden Heuvel (Green Bay, WI)

Darold Vanden Heuvel

UPDATED Thursday, January 9, 2014 — 10:11 a.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Green Bay police officer, involved in his second deadly shooting, has been cleared by the Brown County district attorney.

Authorities say Officer Clint Beguhn fired ten rounds and killed 63-year-old Darold VandenHeuvel last month in the underground parking garage of an apartment where the man’s estranged wife lived.

WLUK-TV reports Beguhn and another officer were called to the apartment and found VandenHeuvel in the garage with a gun. Beguhn told investigators he fired when VandenHeuvel reached for his gun.

Beguhn was also cleared in a deadly shooting outside the Packer Stadium Lounge in 2011. The officer can now return to street duty.

UPDATED Wednesday, January 8, 2014 — 6:34 p.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay’s police chief says an officer acted appropriately when he fatally shot a man suspected of stalking his estranged wife last month.

Police Chief Tom Molitor on Wednesday called the shooting “a tragic event,” but said the officer’s actions were justified.

Sixty-three-year-old Darold VandenHeuvel died Dec. 16 after being struck by seven police bullets inside the garage of his wife’s apartment building.

Molitor says officers had responded to a 5:30 a.m. call from VandenHeuvel’s wife saying the man was in the building.

When officers demanded that VandenHeuvel show his hands, he reached for a handgun in his waistband. Officer Clint Beguhn fired 10 shots at him. The other officer did not fire.
