KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - Bonds are set at $200,000 for a pair of Kenosha men charged in a shooting death that reportedly stemmed from a drug-related robbery.
22-year-old Joseph-Jamal Brantley and 19-year-old Markese Tibbs appeared in Kenosha County Circuit Court Tuesday on charges of reckless homicide, reckless endangerment, and robbery.
Brantley is also charged with illegally carrying a concealed weapon in the death of 20-year-old Anthony Edwards.
Police said Edwards was driving a vehicle when he was shot late at night on April 14th, and the vehicle proceeded to hit a house a short time later. A male juvenile in the vehicle was not hurt.
Media reports said the two defendants had arranged to buy marijuana from Edwards, and then robbed him sometime before the shooting. An investigation continues.
Brantley and Tibbs are both due in court next Wednesday for preliminary hearings.
