Watertown Man Indicted In Madison Shooting

Watertown Man Indicted In Madison Shooting
Carl Ericsson

MADISON, SD - The Lake County state's attorney says a grand jury has indicted a 73-year-old Watertown man for first-degree murder in the January 31 killing of a retired Madison High School teacher and track coach.

Carl Ericsson is accused of fatally shooting his long-ago classmate Norman Johnson in what may have been an old grudge that spanned more than a half-century.

The 72-year-old Johnson was shot twice in the face after answering the door at his house in Madison. Johnson's wife, Barbara, found him lying on the floor and saw a man walking to a car parked outside.

State's attorney Ken Meyer says Ericsson was indicted on Tuesday.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday morning.
