Registered Gun Dealer to Plead Insanity in Fatal Bar Shooting

63-year-old Frank Hvizdak of Glenbeulah, Wisconsin plans to enter a plea of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect in the shooting death of Jason TenPas. Hvizdak, who has no prior criminal record, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide for allegedly firing four shots into TenPas during an argument at a bar in Sheboygan Falls. Witnesses say that Hvizdak and TenPas got into an argument. TenPas stood up and made a sweeping motion with his hand as if to push something away. At that point Hvizdak pulled out a small silver handgun and fired three times. TenPas fell to the floor and Hvizdak then fired a fourth shot into TenPas' head as he lay on the ground.
At the time of the shooting Hvizdak was a licensed federal firearms dealer. The trial is set for September.
