— A suspect in a Beloit homicide is scheduled to appear in court this week.

A criminal complaint accuses 28-year-old Evans Wiggins of shooting Shawn Bell numerous times Aug. 1. Prosecutors have said a car theft might have motivated the fatal shooting. The complaint says the shooting occurred after the 25-year-old victim took off in Wiggins' luxury car. It says Wiggins jumped in another vehicle and searched for Bell, eventually finding him.


Wiggins is charged with first-degree intentional homicide. He's being held on $250,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday for the continuation of his initial appearance.
