Brother of homicide victim to go to trial

The brother of the man fatally shot on Madison?s east side waived his right to a preliminary hearing Thursday.

Bonnell Hanger, 39, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide for the March 3 shooting of 33-year-old Fredrica Hanger.

Fredrica Hanger was shot in the 1300 block of East Wilson Street and taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The shooting resulted from a fight between Fredrica Hanger and his 39-year-old brother, Bonnell Hanger, officials said.

According to the criminal complaint, Fredrica Hanger was in his car installing a car stereo when his brother arrived. The two argued and Fredrica Hanger was shot inside the car, the complaint said.

The Dane County medical examiner said Fredrica Hanger died from gunshot wounds to the head.

At the scene, Bonnell Hanger said, "I shot my kid brother," according to the complaint.

The Department of Corrections confirms Fredrica Hanger was released from prison a week ago after serving nine years for armed robbery.

Bonnell Hanger is being held on $100,000 bail. If convicted, Bonnell Hanger faces life in prison.
