UPDATE: Man pleads no contest in Green Bay strangulation

UPDATED Friday, June 20, 2014 --- 5:25 p.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A 50-year-old man accused of strangling a Green Bay man last year has entered a plea deal.

Jeffrey Wickman pleaded no contest Friday to felony murder. Wickman originally had been charged with first-degree intentional homicide, which could have brought him life in prison. But the reduced charge could mean 28 years of prison and 7 years of extended supervision.

Wickman was accused in the May 2013 death of 49-year-old Daniel Kuehl. His trial was set to start next week.

Police say Wickman burglarized Kuehl in an apparent attempt to steal guns to trade for crack cocaine. Police recovered a stolen gun that led them to arrest Wickman.

Press-Gazette Media (http://gbpg.net/1stVwCq ) reports sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 25.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Prosecutors have charged a 49-year-old man in the strangulation of a Green Bay man last May.

Authorities say DNA evidence and a stolen gun led them to the arrest of Jeffrey Wickman of Green Bay.

Wickman was charged Tuesday in Brown County with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 49-year-old Daniel Kuehl.

Wickman is being held in the Dodge Correctional Institution on a probation violation. He also faces charges of burglary, theft and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Kuehl's body was found in his home on May 10. Police say Wickman broke in.

Authorities say they had to wait for DNA results before they could file murder charges.

WLUK-TV reports the district attorney expects Wickman to appear in court in the next couple of weeks.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay police have ruled the death of a 49-year-old man a homicide.

The department announced last week it was investigating a suspicious death at Daniel Kuehl's residence.

Detective Capt. Todd Thomas tells the Green Bay Press-Gazette the slaying likely occurred within a week of Kuehl's body being found.

Police aren't releasing many other details, including how Kuehl died. But they say officers were on the scene for three days collecting a large amount of evidence that is now being tested at the State Crime Lab.

In a statement, police said Kuehl was described as a kind man who was very private. Police ask anyone who has been in his apartment in the last few months to contact them.

No arrests have been made.
