Prosecutors consider self-defense claim in Milwaukee deaths

MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Milwaukee prosecutors are reportedly trying to decide whether an apartment building's maintenance worker acted in self-defense in the deaths of two teens. The victims were identified yesterday as 19-year-old James Bell Junior and 17-year-old Anmarie Miller, both of Milwaukee. WISN TV said prosecutors have cell-phone video from a part of Wednesday afternoon's incident.

The maintenance worker, a 39-year-old man, is in jail where he was booked on two possible homicide charges. A third person with the teens, a 20-year-old man, is being held on a possible battery charge.

Police said the maintenance man got into an argument with three young people in his building's stairwell. It led to a physical altercation in which the worker was reportedly being held and beaten with a baseball bat. Officials said he then pulled out his gun and shot Miller and Bell to death. Police said they were not allowed to disclose whether the maintenance man had a state concealed weapons' permit.
