Arizona man pleads guilty to killing ex-girlfriend's fiancee in Superior

SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - An Arizona man has pleaded guilty to killing his ex-girlfriend's fiancee in Superior.

42-year-old Juan Padilla of Fort Mohave was supposed to go on trial in two weeks in Douglas County. He decided Monday to plead guilty to his original charge of first-degree intentional homicide.

Padilla will be sentenced to life in prison on October 13th, but prosecutors agreed to ask the judge for the possibility of a supervised release after he serves the minimum of 20 years.

Padilla admitted shooting 46-year-old Terrence Luukkonen of Duluth to death in May of 2013 outside of Genesis Attachments in Superior.

Police said the victim was engaged to a woman who broke off a relationship with Padilla about a month before the slaying. She told officers that Padilla was upset about the break-up, and he mentioned killing her fiancee.
