Lime Kiln Road murder suspect bound over for trial


GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – A 21-year-old man has been bound over for trial in the murder of a man on Green Bay’s east side.

Atlas Watson appeared in Brown County Court Thursday morning for a preliminary hearing. A judge ruled there is enough evidence for the case against Watson to move forward.

Watson is charged with 1st Degree Intentional Homicide – Party to the Crime for the shooting death of Zachary Boose. Boose had moved to Green Bay from Detroit.

A criminal complaint says Watson and another man, David Tatum, Jr., had an “ongoing dispute” with Boose, who had been staying with Tatum and Tatum’s girlfriend at a residence on Lime Kiln Road.

Boose was walking on the sidewalk in the 800 block of Lime Kiln Road when he was approached from behind and shot three times.

The complaint says Tatum, also a native of Detroit, admitted his gun was used in the shooting, but it was Watson who pulled the trigger.

Tatum is also charged with 1st Degree Intentional Homicide – Party to a Crime. Tatum has a status hearing scheduled for Nov. 3.

Watson’s arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 21.

Each suspect is being held on a $1 million bond.
