MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A sentencing date of June 5th has been set for a Milwaukee man convicted of killing an employee at a Family Dollar store during a robbery.  

26-year-old Jason Wandick had a re-trial earlier this month -- where he was convicted of reckless homicide, armed robbery, and illegal firearm possession as a felon.  

Wandick shot store clerk William Melendez Jr. at close range last August, even after the 44-year-old victim agreed to hand over the money in his cash register.  

Wandick's cousin, Mikal Husun Jones, pleaded guilty to felony murder and testified against the shooter.

Jurors could not reach a verdict in Wandick's original trial, and prosecutors immediately re-worked the charges and pursued the second trial.
