MADISON (WKOW) -- The suspect in a Mount Horeb beating death could change his plea before his trial starts.

Koalton Peterson, now 19, is charged with First Degree Reckless Homicide in the death of Ryan Smith, 20. Police say Peterson attacked Smith with a baseball bat after a marijuana deal between the two men fell through. Smith died later at a hospital.

The court had previously entered a not guilty plea for Peterson in the case. He's scheduled for plea and motion hearings Monday in Dane County Circuit Court ahead of his trial, which is scheduled for next month.
