APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - The man charged in a deadly Appleton nightclub shooting last year will stand trial.

In Outagamie County Court Wednesday, Chong Lee will face charges in the shooting death of Joshua Richards at the Luna Lounge on December 8.

Lee was among a group of men involved in a verbal and physical altercation with Richards at the club, according to Outagamie County District Attorney Carrie Schneider.

Prosecutors say Lee pulled out a gun and shot Richards in the side of the head at close range.

Lee is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and being a felon in possession of a weapon. He was on probation from a 2003 burglary conviction.

The family of Joshua Richards has created a memorial fund in his honor through the United Way. It will assist children with expenses related to participating in sports.
