JANESVILLE, Wis. — The case against a 16-year-old charged with shooting and killing another teen over Labor Day weekend is moving forward.

Dante Wilson, 16, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, possession of a firearm on school grounds and possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18.

According to online court records, the court ruled Monday during Wilson’s preliminary hearing that there’s enough evidence against the 16-year-old to move forward with the case.

He’s being held on a $50,000 bond.
