WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) A Wausau man is being held on $250,000 bond in a jail attack that injured two corrections officers, including one who's hospitalized in intensive care.
Twenty-year-old Fredrick Morris is charged with aggravated battery in the March 27th attack at the Marathon County Jail that critically injured Julie Christensen, who remains at Aspirus Wausau Hospital. A second corrections officer was injured, treated at the hospital and released. A medical report attached to the criminal complaint says Christensen only recently woke from a coma.
Meanwhile, the administrator of the jail has resigned after 25 years on the job. County Administrator Brad Karger says jail employees felt their concerns about safety had not been addressed.
NEWVILLE, Wis. (AP) Some homes along the Rock River, Lake Koshkonong, Turtle Creek and Sugar River are flooding in Rock County. Chief Deputy Barbara Tillman at the sheriff's department says some homes have water in yards, some have a few inches in basements and others have full basements. She says the power company has turned off electricity to some areas and some flooded roads in the county are also closed.
She says local athletes, fire departments, other community volunteers and inmate crews are filling thousands of sandbags and leaving them throughout the county so residents can easily access them.
Law enforcement has not issued any evacuations. So far, Tillman says flooding is not as bad as in 2008 but they are closely monitoring the situation.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Another wintry blast has buried northeastern Minnesota under more than a foot and a-half of new snow, disrupted travel and closed schools. The National Weather Service says 22 inches of snow has fallen in the Lake County community of Two Harbors, with 20 inches at Lake Nichols in St. Louis County. Duluth, Proctor and Cloquet are among the school districts canceling classes.
The heavy snow left more than 6,000 Minnesota Power customers without service early Friday. Utility crews made swift progress in restoring power.
The mounting snow is a record for Duluth in April. With nearly 42 inches of snow so far, it easily surpassed 31.6 inches set in 1950. Forecasters say lake-effect snow should continue to fall along Wisconsin's south shore, with a band of moderate snow in Carlton and northern Pine counties.
