Wagswoofs – The lawyer who was representing the suspect accused of murdering a man outside a Beloit high school has decided to withdraw from the case, according to court records.
Amaree Goodall made an appearance in Rock County court on Tuesday for a status conference. During the conference, the proposal for his counsel to withdraw was approved.
Attorney Kim Zion, in the affidavit supporting the order, revealed that she had come across a conflict that would prevent her from representing Goodall. Zion duly informed Goodall about the conflict, and he expressed no objection, as stated in the order.
The order did not specify the nature of the conflict.
Goodall has another status conference scheduled for January 4, 2024, and his trial is set to commence in February.
Goodall, who is 20 years old, is facing a charge of first-degree reckless homicide. He is being accused of killing Jion Broomfield after a basketball game on January 29th. The game took place between Beloit Memorial High School and Madison’s La Follette High School.
According to court records, he was charged with a felony for battery by prisoners on Monday. A cash bond of $500 was set.
