Charged with felony murder, Tedric Sanders bound over for trial

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The man police say tried to rob Innovative Optique in Fox Point in early August was bound over for trial  in court on Wednesday, August 27th. That robbery ended in a shooting and one man dead -- the suspect's alleged accomplice.

20-year-old Tedric Sanders is charged even though police say he wasn't the one to fire the gun. Police say an employee at the store exchanged gunfire with 22-year-old Joshua Drake -- and Drake later died at the scene.

Under Wisconsin law, those involved in felonies can be charged if someone dies while the crime is being committed.

Sanders has a lengthy criminal history. In fact, at the time of the attempted armed robbery and shooting, police say Sanders was supposed to be in court for a charge related to a high-speed chase.

Sanders is due back in court on September 4th -- when he will enter a plea to the charges against him.
