GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A 50-year-old man accused of strangling a Green Bay man last year has entered a plea deal.

Jeffrey Wickman pleaded no contest Friday to felony murder. Wickman originally had been charged with first-degree intentional homicide, which could have brought him life in prison. But the reduced charge could mean 28 years of prison and 7 years of extended supervision.

Wickman was accused in the May 2013 death of 49-year-old Daniel Kuehl. His trial was set to start next week.

Police say Wickman burglarized Kuehl in an apparent attempt to steal guns to trade for crack cocaine. Police recovered a stolen gun that led them to arrest Wickman.

Press-Gazette Media (https://gbpg.net/1stVwCq ) reports sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 25.
