WOOD COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A central Wisconsin man has made a plea deal, after he admitted that he accidentally killed his best friend while he was drunk.

A trial scheduled for Thursday has been called off, and 22-year-old Tyler Enkro of the town of Grand Rapids is scheduled to enter a new plea on March 7th in Wood County Circuit Court.

He’s currently charged with homicide by the intoxicated use of a firearm in the December 2011 death of 31-year-old Nick Hoffman of Wisconsin Rapids.

Enkro first reported the shooting to authorities. His blood alcohol level at the time was 0.17, more than twice the legal limit for drunk drivers.
