MILWAUKEE — Suspect Jordan Fricke, who previously was charged with killing Milwaukee Police Officer Matthew Rittner, appeared in court Thursday for another pretrial hearing.

Fricke, who previously pleaded not guilty to three charges in the case involving Rittner, was charged Thursday with first-degree recklessly endangering safety regarding another officer. He pleaded not guilty to that charge, too.

Fricke is accused of shooting Rittner as his police unit executed a warrant for suspected illegal guns and drugs Feb. 6 at a Milwaukee duplex.

Fricke's trial is set for July 8.

Fricke previously was charged with first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety and maintaining a drug trafficking place. He has been jailed on $1 million bond.
