Man accused of killing woman convicted of lesser charges
MADISON, Wis. — The man accused of killing a woman inside a Madison group home and injuring another in 2016 was found not guilty of first-degree intentional homicide Thursday night.
Hassan is accused of shooting and killing 23-year-old Fatoumatta Jallow inside a Rem Wisconsin Group Home where she worked on Kevin’s Way.
He is also accused of shooting a second female employee, who survived. Hassan’s attorney doesn’t debate he committed the crime, but he said it wasn’t intentional, while the prosecution said there was clearly intent.
“When you shoot two people, when you take your gun and shoot two people multiple times in the torso, that’s the end, that is first-degree intentional homicide,” Prosecuting attorney Valerian Powell said in court Thursday.
If convicted of both charges, Hassan faces about 85 years in prison including extended supervision.
