Man competent for homicide trial


Anthony Harris II

Anthony Harris II was found competent Tuesday to stand trial for the shooting death of Salem Lakes resident Joseph Riley.

Harris, 24, of Racine, is one of four people charged in the home invasion homicide at Riley’s home last November.

At a hearing Tuesday, attorneys for the defense and state agreed that a psychiatrist’s evaluation of Harris found that he was mentally competent to stand trial.

He is now scheduled to go to trial Jan. 21.

Also charged with Riley’s murder are Markeith Wilson, 20, Demarco Hudson, 19, and Augustine Sanchez, 21, all of Racine.

The four men are alleged to have targeted Riley for a robbery, three of the men allegedly breaking into his home.

When Riley grabbed a gun, he and the men exchanged fire. Riley was killed and a friend at his home was critically injured.

Hudson and Wilson were both shot in the exchange of gunfire.

The four men will be tried separately.
