KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - A Kenosha man is due back in court a week from Friday on seven felony charges in the shooting death of an innocent tavern customer.
Prosecutors said 24-year-old M.L. Dale got into a confrontation with two men over a shooting incident 7 years ago. Officials said he left the bar, came back with a gun, and fired shots toward the two men.
The innocent bystander, 31-year-old Terianna Cecil of Gurnee Illinois, was killed.
It happened early last Saturday at Shenanigan's Tavern in Kenosha.
Dale is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, two counts of attempted homicide, illegal firearm possession as a convicted felon, and 3 counts of bail jumping. He was placed under a half-million dollar bond.
A judge will decide next week if there's enough evidence to order a trial.
Dale is also scheduled to go on trial August 12th in Racine County for reckless endangerment, delivering heroin, intimidating a witness, battery by a prisoner, and disorderly conduct.
Dale also faces a possible November 3rd trial in Kenosha on separate counts of disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer.
