GREEN BAY - Jeffrey Wickman pleaded no contest Friday to the murder of Daniel Kuehl, avoiding trial next week.

Wickman strangled Kuehl last May at Kuehl's home, after police say he broke in, looking to steal guns that could be traded for cash or drugs. Police eventually recovered a stolen gun, leading to Wickman's arrest.

He will be sentenced Aug. 25, according to a court official.
