Milwaukee - Last Friday, both Louis Manuel Hernández, 25, and Joshua Rosa, 20, were charged in intake Milwaukee County Circuit Court with 1st-degree intentional homicide and 1st-degree attempted homicide in connection with the murder of Donovan M. Bond, 22, and injuring Anthony Perkins, 22, on March 18. The suspects were taken into custody on the same day they allegedly committed Bond's homicide.
Police took the suspects into custody after they were lured by a drug sting. Rosa was charged on Friday with an additional four felony counts of manufacturing and intent to deliver heroin. Hernández was charged in September with three felony counts for cocaine and heroin possession with intent to deliver, according to court records.
The criminal complaint states, that the suspects shot at a vehicle Perkins and Bond were in at a stop. Perkins, who was driving was shot in the left hip and Bond, a passenger suffered a fatal wound to the head in the rear of the vehicle. Perkins' car lost control and went through a fence into I-43 highway from N. 7th St. and W. Keefe St. The vehicle stopped in the middle of the concrete barrier separating the north and south bound traffic on I-43.
If convicted on both homicide counts each, Hernández and Rosa face life in prison without parole and more than 40 years each on the drug convictions. They are expected back in court for a preliminary hearing on April 3.
A judge set a cash bond of $200,000 for Hernández and $300,000 cash bond for Rosa, according to court records.
