Prosecution Can Proceed in Apple River Stabbings Case
Hudson, WI (KROC-AM News) - The man accused of fatally stabbing a Minnesota teenager during a confrontation involving tubers on the Apple River was in court this morning.
After hearing testimony during the preliminary hearing, a judge in St. Croix County Wisconsin ruled there is probable cause to proceed with the criminal case against Nicolae Miu. The 52-year-old Prior Lake man is facing a first-degree murder charge and 3 counts of first-degree attempted murder. He remains jailed on $1 million bail and has been ordered back to court on September 8th for his formal arraignment.
Miu is accused of brandishing a knife and stabbing 5 people after he engaged them in a confrontation while the group was tubing on the river in western Wisconsin on July 30th. One of the stabbing victims, 17-year-old Isaac Schuman of Stillwater, died from his wounds.
Miu told investigators he was acting in self-defense and has hired the attorney who successfully defended teenager Kyle Rittenhouse after he shot and killed 2 men during rioting in Kenosha Wisconsin two years ago.
