Man sentenced for 2014 Haley murder

Print Article

JANESVILLE - One of the defendants charged in the gruesome April 2014 murder of Edward Haley has been sentenced to 10 years in prison following a Rock County Circuit Court hearing Tuesday.

LaQuann J. Kendall, 23, of Beloit, also faces 10 years of supervised release once he completes his prison term for his role in Haley's death. Kendall's sentence will be served concurrently to a sentence issued in Green Bay.

Judge James Daley issued the sentence after Kendall pleaded guilty to second-degree reckless homicide.

Haley was shot just after midnight on April 25, 2014 in the 2100 block of Newark Road in Beloit.

He was shot 18 times in the execution-style murder after another defendant in the case, Ronald L. Hicks, 32, allegedly stated he wanted to murder Haley, according to the criminal complaint.

Hicks will appear in Rock County court on Nov. 20, court records show.

He is charged with first-degree intentional homicide.

The violent nature of the crime is alleged throughout the criminal complaint, with a witness of the murder telling investigators Hicks spared his life solely because he correctly guessed the outcome of a coin flip following Haley's murder.

Inmates in the Rock County Jail and in the federal penal system claimed Kendall boasted about his involvement in the murder while incarcerated, according to the criminal complaint.

Charges against Angelo N. Young, 34, of Beloit, were dismissed last July, according to Young's court record.
