21-year-old Deanthony Bradley in November pleaded guilty to one count of first degree reckless homicide, use of a dangerous weapon, as party to a crime. He was sentenced to serve 30 years in prison, and 15 years extended supervision.
Wood was shot and killed on July 13th, 2016 near 28th and Clarke in Milwaukee. Investigators said Wood was shot while in her vehicle.
According to a criminal complaint, Bradley and three others wanted to rob Wood. A witness told investigators he saw Bradley with a weapon, and thought this was a drug deal.
Authorities say Bradley pointed a gun at Wood's head with his finger on the trigger. He told police when Wood tried to drive away, the gun went off -- and Wood was killed. An autopsy revealed she suffered two gunshot wounds -- one to the back and one to the chest -- wounds caused by one bullet, according to police.
After the shooting, Wood's vehicle crashed into a tree in the area.
According to the complaint, after the shooting, a witness indicated one of the suspects went to Rebecca Wood's vehicle and took a purse -- apparently dropping it when a witness yelled at them. The complaint says police found Rebecca Wood's purse and a $20 bill near her body at the scene. A $10 bill was later found at the scene, with blood on it.
The complaint says one of the suspects stated that they got away with $20 after the robbery and fatal shooting. The complaint states that a suspect told investigators he used the money to buy cigarettes and "two bags of weed."
