District attorney decision in West Allis shoplifting death is expected soon

April 30, 2013

West Allis - A decision from the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office could come as early as late next week on whether charges will be filed against three men who detained a suspected shoplifter who later died.

The 16-year-old boy, Corey Stingley, a West Allis high school student, died Dec. 29, but the medical examiners office did not come to a conclusion about the cause of death until about a week ago, Assistant District Attorney Mark Williams said.

"I'm still talking with the medical examiner, but we should have a decision in a week or two," Williams said Tuesday.

The incident happened Dec. 14 at VJ's Food Mart, 9206 W. Schlinger Ave. Three men restrained Stingley after he was allegedly seen shoplifting at the West Allis convenience store.

All three men were arrested and referred to prosecutors. None have been cleared at this time, Williams said.

They all have hired criminal defense attorneys.

West Allis Police Chief Charles Padgett said the West Allis detective on the case has been in contact with the DA's office during the months since the case was turned over to county authorities.
