Plea deal may be reached in an Oneida County murder caseSubmitted: 07/03/2015
RHINELANDER -

A plea deal may be close for one of the suspects in an Oneida County murder.

33 year old Latoya Wolf faces a charge of being a party to a murder in Rhinelander.

The murder happened in 2003.

The Tomahawk woman is the niece of Kenneth Wells, the man who was killed.

Police found Wells dead in the Wisconsin River in 2003.

His case went cold until 2012 when Wolf told police she knew more about his death.

She told investigators her ex-husband, 40-year-old Shannon Wolf, killed Wells.

Yesterday, Latoya Wolf appeared in Oneida County court for a pretrial conference.

Electronic court records show District Attorney Michael Schiek believes that an agreement is possible.

He requested that a date be set for Wolf to enter a plea.

That has been scheduled for July 30th in Oneida County Circuit Court.
