A plea deal has been reached in the case of a man facing an attempted murder charge in Leavenworth County. But the defense attorney requested a continuance before his client enters the plea.

A plea deal has been reached in the case of a man facing an attempted murder charge in Leavenworth County. But the defense attorney requested a continuance before his client enters the plea.

The case of Andrew G. Foderaro was continued until Feb. 15.

Foderaro, 20, is charged in Leavenworth County District Court with attempted first-degree murder, possession of cocaine, a misdemeanor count of possession of stolen property and a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana.

The charges stem from an Oct. 27, 2017, incident that occurred on 227th Street in the rural Easton area.

A criminal complaint alleges that Foderaro discharged a firearm multiple times with the intent to kill another man.

The victim was taken to the hospital following the incident.

Leavenworth County Undersheriff Jim Sherley has said authorities believe the shooting resulted from a drug deal that had gone bad.

Foderaro appeared in court Friday with his attorney, Carl Cornwell.

Cornwell said he has gone through a plea petition with his client.

“We’ve got the plea worked out,” he said.

But the defense attorney said he wants to file a motion at the time the plea is entered, and the motion was not yet ready.

The case was continued for a week.
