Rhinelander man formally charged for shooting uncle over chores

RHINELANDER, WI (WTAQ) - A Rhinelander man accused of shooting his uncle over household chores is due back in court a week from Wednesday.

23-year-old Marcus Alsteens completed his initial appearance Monday in Oneida County on charges of attempted homicide, endangering safety, aggravated battery, and causing injury by the negligent use of a weapon. All but the endangerment charge are felonies.

Authorities said Alsteens shot his 49-year-old uncle Justin Alsteens on August 12th in Rhinelander, and was later arrested near Eagle River.

The shooting victim was still in critical condition at last word at a Marshfield hospital.

Alsteens remains in jail under a $50,000 bond. At his next court appearance, a judge is expected to decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial on the felony counts.
