Man charged in 2021 Labor Day weekend homicide bound over for trial

MADISON, Wis. — A man charged with killing another man during Labor Day weekend last year has been bound over for trial.

Jeremiah Cain, 19, faces one count of first-degree intentional homicide in connection with a shooting on Sept. 6, 2021, that killed 20-year-old Nicholas Cooke. During a Tuesday morning hearing in Dane County court, a judge entered a not-guilty plea on Cain’s behalf as he stood mute.

Prosecutors alleged in a criminal complaint filed against Cain that the shooting that killed Cooke was caught on camera. Authorities also said an independent witness identified Cain as the shooter.
