ELKHORN (WKOW) -- A Walworth County sheriff's deputy won't face charges for fatally shooting a hospitalized inmate who tried to escape.
District Attorney Daniel Necci found that Deputy Richard Lagle was justified in using deadly force.
Lagle was guarding 18-year-old Alfredo Villarreal of Janesville at Aurora Lakeland Medical Center in Elkhorn, where Villarreal was taken for tests January 21.
Villarreal asked to use the bathroom, so Lagle removed his shackle. When the deputy tried to re-shackle him, Villarreal kicked him in the face with his shin, then began punching the deputy in the head.
Lagle had trouble with his stun gun. The inmate began hitting the window of his hospital room with a chair and after he raised the chair toward Lagle, the deputy shot him five times. Villarreal died at the scene.
