Forest County stabbing suspect appears in courtSubmitted: 01/30/2013
Story By Hayley Tenpas


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.

LANGLADE COUNTY - Lake property owners in the Northwoods often care deeply about the health and well-being of their lakes. The people who live around Rolling Stone Lake in northern Langlade County are just one example.

The lake has a weed cutter machine, a large storage and maintenance building, and public land. Members around the lake pay a little extra tax for those things. But the lake district will also raise thousands of dollars this weekend. They're hosting a picnic, rummage sale, raffles, and bake sale for their lake.

"It's really the best-kept secret in the Northwoods, I think," said Char Waite, a member of the Rolling Stone Lake Protecting and Rehabilitation District. "It's quiet. It's a great lake to fish. It's a great lake to boat. We just love it here."

RHINELANDER - People don't like to pay for things they don't use and don't own, which makes Rhinelander's discovery all the more tricky.  The city has been plowing a private alley for more than three decades.

The rocky and narrow alley runs between Pearl and Rose Streets near Hodag Park.

The city public works director realized the mistake about two months ago.  The 12 homeowners there own the land, which means every time a Rhinelander plow goes through, it's trespassing.
