Oshkosh man convicted in stabbing death

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - A jury in Sheboygan has convicted a 23-year-old Oshkosh man for a stabbing death. 

Jurors refused to accept Michael Lemerande's claim that he acted in self-defense when he killed 41-year-old Nicholas Lehrke with a butcher knife. It happened earlier this year during a fight. 

Lemerande claimed he was defending a friend whom Lehrke was attacking. Prosecutors said the fight was not a major scuffle, and Lemerande's friend was never in serious danger. 

Lemerande was found guilty of second-degree reckless homicide. 

A sentencing date has not been set. The judge and attorneys in the case will get together for a status conference on November 25th.
