WISCONSIN RAPIDS, WI (WTAQ) - A judge in central Wisconsin accepted a plea deal Thursday for a Wisconsin Rapids area man accused of shooting his best friend to death while drunk.

22-year-old Tyler Enkro pleaded no contest in Wood County to a felony charge of homicide by intoxicated use of a firearm.

A companion charge of homicide with a prohibited blood alcohol level was dropped.

Enkro is scheduled to be sentenced May 13th.

Prosecutors said he called 911 after he shot 31-year-old Nick Hoffman of Wisconsin Rapids in the neck in December of 2011.

Hoffman died a short time later at a Marshfield hospital. Enkro’s blood alcohol level was point-17 at the time – that was more than twice the legal intoxication limit.
