BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A Wisconsin man will go to prison for killing a North Bend homeowner two years ago.
25-year-old Aaron Powers received a sentence of 43 years in prison and 23 years of extended supervision during a hearing Friday afternoon.
Powers was convicted of shooting and killing 56-year-old Terrance Stoen during a robbery of Stoen's home in October 2010.
The criminal complaint against Powers stated he fired a shotgun through the door of Stoen's home, fatally wounding Stoen.
After taking several items from the home, Powers then stole Stoen's truck. He was arrested in Juneau County with the truck and some of the items taken from Stoen's home.
In January, he reached an agreement to plead guilty to the charges. His sentencing was delayed until Friday after he tried to withdraw his guilty pleas. A judge denied Powers attempts to change his pleas.
