Madison Shooting Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

Madison Shooting Suspect Pleads Not Guilty
Carl Ericsson | February 2, 2012

MADISON, SD - A lawyer for a 73-year-old Watertown man accused of fatally shooting his long-ago classmate in an incident that might have stemmed from an old grudge has entered a not guilty plea and requested a jury trial.

Carl Ericsson is charged with first-degree murder in the Jan. 31 killing of retired Madison High School teacher and track coach Norman Johnson.

Defense attorney Scott Bratland entered the plea on Ericsson's behalf during a court hearing Thursday. A judge set a July 9 trial date.

The 72-year-old Johnson was shot twice in the face after answering the door at his house in Madison.

Ericsson's brother said in an affidavit that Ericsson was a sports manager at Madison High years ago and there was an incident in which Johnson did something to him.
