Milwaukee man accused of killing another man during barbecue

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Milwaukee man is charged with killing another man during a barbecue last week.

Thirty-four-year-old Robbie Fields was charged Friday with first-degree reckless homicide.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Fields is accused of killing Rumea Meatheney. Meatheney had gone to a friend's duplex for a barbecue Monday when he was killed.

Fields lived in the same duplex as Meatheney's friend. The complaint says witnesses told police the two men were arguing when gunfire erupted.

The complaint says at least one witness says he saw Fields run from the house with a gun. On Wednesday, Fields approached a forensic investigator with the Milwaukee Police Department and turned himself him.

Fields remains jailed with cash bond set at $20,000. He's due in court for a preliminary hearing March 23.
