(Hurley, WI) — A preliminary hearing for five men accused of conspiring to shoot a Lac du Flambeau man to death will be held next month. Wayne Valliere Junior’s body was found on New Year’s Day, 10 days after he went missing. He had been shot eight times. The group of suspects may have thought Valliere was a police informant. They had argued with him over a meth pipe. Either motive may have led to the killing. Twenty-seven-year-old Richard Allen, 26-year-old Joseph Lussier, 19-year-old James Lussier, 28-year-old Evan Oungst and 26-year-old Curtis Wolfe are each charged with two felonies.
