(1/16/13) A central Wisconsin man has made a plea deal, after he admitted that he accidentally killed his best friend while he was drunk.

A trial scheduled for tomorrow has been called off, and 22-year-old Tyler Enkro of the town of Grand Rapids is scheduled to enter a new plea on March seventh in Wood County Circuit Court. He's currently charged with homicide by the intoxicated use of a firearm in the December 2011 death of 31-year-old Nick Hoffman of Wisconsin Rapids. Enkro first reported the shooting to authorities. His blood alcohol level at the time was point-17, more than twice the legal limit for drunk drivers.
