UNDATED (WXPR) - Two suspects have been bound over for trial in two separate Northwoods attempted first degree homicide trials.
In Forest county, 30 year old Brandon Brunette was bound over for trial and entered not guilty pleas to three other felony and misdemeanor charges including child abuse. Brunette is charged with allegedly tossing a one-year-old child hard enough to cause a brain injury last October. He denies the allegations. Brunette has a pretrial set for May 13th.
The child was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield for treatment.
In Vilas county, 28-year-old Andrew Lee Rosner is accused of stabbing his pregnant girlfriend February 1st in a car. The criminal complaint alleges Rosner had a fight with the 20-year-old woman, then stabbed her with a pocket knife. The woman drove herself to the hospital for treatment. Judge Neal Nielsen found enough evidence to continue proceedings against Rosner. He returns to court March 17th to enter a plea to two attempted homicide counts. One of the counts includes the unborn child.
Rosner is being held in Eagle River on a $50,000 cash bond. Brunette is being held in Crandon on $10,000 cash bond.
