MERRILL – Eric Lee Moen, 35, of Wausau, pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree intentional homicide in Lincoln County court on Tuesday, May 26, according to court records.
Investigators said Moen shot Charles “Chuck” K. Ramp, 52, five times with a 20-gauge shotgun in the driveway of Ramp’s home, located at 205 W. Mohawk Avenue in Tomahawk, late in the afternoon of Nov. 16, 2017. The two had been friends for four years, and Moen had been to the home many times before, according to a story published in the Nov. 21, 2017 issue of the Tomahawk Leader.
Moen fled the scene after the shooting and was taken into custody in Chippewa County later that evening. Ramp died from his injuries at Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital in Tomahawk shortly after the shooting.
A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Sept. 2, 2020.
