Suspect in Racine County fatal shooting in custody

RACINE (AP) -- The Racine County Sheriff says a suspect is in custody in Missouri in last weekend's shooting death of a 54-year-old man in the Town of Yorkville.

Sheriff Christopher Schmaling says Friday the suspect is being held on an unrelated Wisconsin Department of Corrections warrant. He will be extradited back to Wisconsin where he'll be formally arrested for last Sunday's shooting death of Robert Greene.

Schmaling says his office will recommend to the Racine County District Attorney that the suspect be formally charged with homicide.

The sheriff's office had said Greene was staying with friends at the location of the shooting, which took place early last Sunday. Schmaling says the investigation is ongoing.
