RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine man will spend at least 40 years in prison for killing a college student over the victim’s driving habits.
30-year-old Sean Forester-Hoare was sentenced to life in prison this week. But a Racine County circuit judge allowed the defendant to be eligible for a supervised release as early as age 70.
Forester-Hoare was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 21-year-old Jonathan Kwiatkowski in April of last year.
Both had lived 3 houses away from each other. Forester-Hoare was arrested while walking home soon after he killed Kwiatkowski during a fight.
Forester-Hoare claimed he acted in self-defense. The judge allowed a chance at parole despite saying that Forester-Hoare was reluctant to take responsibility for his actions.
