SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - An Arizona man has pleaded not guilty to killing the fiancée of his ex-girlfriend in Superior.

41-year-old Juan Padilla of Fort Mohave was arraigned Monday in Douglas County Circuit Court on a charge of first-degree intentional homicide.

He’s accused of killing 46-year-old Terrence Luukkonen, who was found shot and bleeding in his car outside of Genesis Attachments in Superior on May 23rd. Luukkonen died a short time later at a hospital in nearby Duluth Minnesota.

A 911 caller told police that Luukkonen had committed suicide.

Prosecutors said he was engaged to a woman who broke off a relationship with Padilla about a month before the killing. She told police that Padilla was upset about the breakup, and he wanted to kill her fiancée.

A hearing is set for August 14th on the status of the case. A trial date could be set at that time.
