WAUKESHA — Billy Ingram, the man accused of murdering a Waukesha gas station clerk, pleaded not guilty Wednesday, August 1st, according to FOX6’s media partners at the Waukesha Patch. A judge has determined there is enough evidence for trial in this case.

Ingram has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide (repeater) in the murder of 56-year-old Nayyer Rana at the Petro Mart in Waukesha. This is the first homicide in the City of Waukesha since 2010.

Ingram also faces charges of armed robbery with use of force (repeater), possession of a firearm by a felon (repeater) and possession of marijuana (repeater) charges.

The criminal complaint in the case says investigators discovered two gunshot wounds on Rana’s body — one in the abdominal area and one in the right shoulder area. An autopsy later discovered a third gunshot wound to Rana’s mouth.

Ingram was on probation for a burglary conviction when the homicide occurred.

Police had said early in the investigation they believed locating the suspect responsible would be difficult, as there were no witnesses, nor surveillance video or photos. However, Ingram was arrested less than 24 hours after the murder.

Ingram faces a mandatory life in prison sentence if convicted on the homicide charge.

Ingram is expected back in court October 4th.
