Man accused of killing co-worker pleads not guilty, bound over for trial

MADISON, Wis. — The man accused of shooting and killing his co-worker at a Janesville business in April pleaded not guilty Monday, online court records show.

Kevin Todd, 23, of Evansville is charged with one count of first-degree intentional homicide and three counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety. A criminal complaint filed with the Rock County Circuit Court alleges that Todd shot and killed 30-year-old Devon Hills at Precision Drawn Metals. He allegedly confessed to the shooting while speaking to police.

Todd had only been working at Precision Drawn Metals for about a week prior to the shooting and reportedly alleged that he was bullied by Hills at work. Police said that employee statements do not support Todd’s claims

Appearing in court by video Monday, Todd waived his right to a preliminary hearing and pleaded not guilty. He was bound over for trial, however, a date for further court proceedings has not been set.

In an initial appearance last month, his bond was set at $1 million.
