WAUKESHA, WI (WHBL) - A Milwaukee man who is in prison for killing another Milwaukee man is going to stay there. 28 year old Michael Moffett was convicted by a Sheboygan County jury in 2010 in the murder of Luis DeLeon and sentenced to life without parole.
He had appealed on the grounds that evidence in the case showed that he was in imminent danger and that deadly force was justified when he shot and killed DeLeon in March of 2009. The Appeals Court disagreed in a decision handed down today and upheld the conviction.
The shooting took place in the 1300 block of Huron Avenue and was believed to be the result of a dispute over drug turf. Both men were known drug dealers.
