RACINE CO, WI (AP)—A suburban Milwaukee man is accused of fatally shooting his girlfriend’s new love interest at the victim’s Racine County home.

Troy Hoffman is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the Dec. 26 slaying of Chad Bickler in the town of Norway.  A criminal complaint says Hoffman followed his girlfriend to Bickler’s house and rammed her car. It says the woman fled on foot after seeing that Hoffman had a gun.
