MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) - An eastern Wisconsin man initially charged with first-degree intentional homicide has been convicted of a reduced charge in his stepson’s stabbing death.

The Manitowoc County Clerk of Courts Office says Jesse Moreno Jr. of Two Rivers pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree reckless homicide.

WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1FA50zs ) reports Moreno stabbed his stepson, 34-year-old Koyoko (koy-YOH’-koh) Perry, last April during an argument over family and money.

Perry tried to drive away from the crime scene but crashed into two other vehicles in a driveway. He later died at a hospital.

He faces up to 25 years in prison when he’s sentenced on June 12.
