Wisconsin Man Charged with Killing Stepson

A Milwaukee, Wisconsin man has recently been charged with killing his 14 year-old stepson.  According to reports,  the man killed his 14 year-old stepson in an attempt to get back at his wife and her family members.  The man claimed that the wife and relatives were interfering with his business. The man has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide for strangling the 14 year-old to death in a Walmart parking lot. 

This is not the first act of violence and the man has had a violent past.  The man had reportedly struck his wife with a hammer several times about a week prior to this incident.  The wife was filing a police report for this incident at about the time her son was being killed.
