Charges Elevated

Posted on 26th November 2010 at 09:06

Charges against the Onalaska homeowner who allegedly shot and killed a man that he claimed was an intruder are now being elevated to first-degree murder. The Centralia Chronicle reports that prosecutors amended the charges against Ronald Allen Brady, 60, one week ago. Brady is accused of shooting and killing Thomas McKenzie, 56, of Morton, early on the morning of April 19th. Brady initially claimed that he was shooting at some suspected burglars, but McKenzie’s wife, Joanna McKenzie, 32, claims that they were at the house to get some car parts that they’d been given permission to take. Brady is also charged with first-degree assault, for shots that were supposedly fired at the woman. Brady is currently scheduled to go on trial on January 10th of next year.
