CRANDON - The Northwoods teenager accused of nearly stabbing a man to death 12 days ago appeared in court today.

16-year-old Christian Soulier faced his preliminary hearing in adult court.

Soulier faces charges of first degree intentional attempted homicide and first degree recklessly endangering safety.

Police say Soulier stabbed his mother's boyfriend, Robert Johnson four times Friday, January 18th.

He then hid from police.

Soulier was living in Johnson's home at the time.

"What we did show is that the victim had expressed a certain set of facts as you heard, that he was in the bedroom when he was approached by the defendent. The defendent also coroborated that through his interview. The victim was stabbed, according to the doctor, four times. Two of of which were potentially life threatening," said Forest County District Attorney Chuck Simono.

Johnson is still being treated at Ministry St. Mary's hospital in Rhinelander.

The court found probable cause to move the case forward.

Soulier will be back in court in February.
