Man who killed deer with snowmobile expected to enter plea deal

by

WAUPACA COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A Waupaca County man accused of joining two others in killing a half-dozen deer with their snowmobiles is scheduled to enter pleas tomorrow to avoid a trial. 27-year-old Rori Kuenzi of Weyauwega is expected to settle his deer slaughtering case about a year after he was found guilty of a hit-and-run drunk driving death. The deer-slaughtering case attracted national publicity soon after it occurred in early 2009. While that was happening, state Justice officials picked up a dormant investigation into the hit-and-run death of Kevin McCoy five years earlier in Waupaca County. And Kuenzi was eventually convicted by a jury of killing McCoy with his pick-up truck after leaving a drinking party, and dumping the victim's body in a roadside ditch. Meanwhile, the other two defendants in the deer-slaughtering case are not as close to having their charges settled. Kuenzi's brother Robby had a court hearing set for today, and Nicholas Hermes is due in court December 15th for a conference on the status of his case.
