Homicide Suspect Wants Felony Charges Dismissed
Motion hearing in Waukesha gas station slaying is scheduled for June 29.
The suspect in the late-May gas station homicide of 56-year-old convenience store clerk Nayyer Rana is trying to have his felony charges dismissed in Waukesha County Circuit Court.
Billy Ingram, 20, of Waukesha, remains jailed in lieu of $1 million jail on a first-degree intentional homicide charge. He was in court Friday afternoon where a motion hearing was scheduled about the request to dismiss the charges.
Court Commissioner Martin Binn will hear the motion at 1:15 p.m. June 29. In addition to having the homicide charge dismissed, Ingram is also seeking to have armed robbery and possession of a firearm by a felon charges dismissed. He is not seeking to have a misdemeanor possession of marijuana charge dropped.
Ingram, who was on probation for a burglary conviction in Milwaukee County, was living with his cousin on Jackson Court in Waukesha. The criminal complaint alleges that Ingram used his cousin’s .40-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun to hold up the Petro Mart gas station May 29, where he shot and killed Rana while stealing $985, cigars, cigarettes and snacks.
Ingram faces life in prison if convicted of the homicide charge.
