MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee man who prosecutors say raped his ex-girlfriend’s 15-year-old sister before killing her new boyfriend in January has pleaded guilty to reduced charges.

Court records say 19-year-old Markell Greer pleaded guilty Thursday to first-degree reckless homicide, second-degree assault of a child and three counts of false imprisonment. He initially faced other charges, including first-degree intentional homicide.

A criminal complaint says Greer sexually assaulted and confined the girl for more than 12 hours before his 18-year-old ex-girlfriend, 30-year-old Nevelo Smith and another girl returned home. According to the complaint, Greer shot Smith as he fled and held the others at gunpoint before they were able to escape.
