KENOSHA — Martice Fuller pleaded not guilty on Friday, May 24 to charges associated with the fatal shooting of Kaylie Juga, 15, on Thursday, May 9. The shooting wounded Juga’s mother, Stephanie Juga.

Fuller, now 16, is being held on $1 million cash bond — and is charged with the following:

  • First degree intentional homicide, use of a dangerous weapon
  • Attempted first degree intentional homicide, use of a dangerous weapon
  • Burglary while armed with a dangerous weapon

According to the criminal complaint, the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched to 66th Street around 3 p.m. on Thursday, May 9 for a report of a shooting. The first deputy on the scene observed the garage door at the home was open — and he went inside. The deputy found Kaylie Juga lying on the floor of a room — suffering from fatal gunshot wounds. The deputy also came upon Stephanie Juga, Kaylie’s mother, who was wounded.

The complaint said when asked about what happened, Stephanie Juga told investigators Kaylie was in her room listening to music after school. Mrs. Juga said “she heard a blood-curdling scream” followed by a “bang.” When Mrs. Juga stepped into the hallway, she told investigators she saw Fuller standing at the entrance to her daughter’s room. She “pleaded with (Fuller) — ‘You don’t have to do this.’ (Fuller) replied to Mrs. Juga, ‘Yes, I have to.'” Mrs. Juga told investigators she attempted to shut the door and was shot a couple of times. She eventually locked herself in a bathroom and called 911.
