Teen Accused in Stabbing will be Tried as AdultSubmitted: 03/20/2013
Story By Lyndsey Stemm


CRANDON - Stabbing a man when you're a teenager doesn't mean you'll get tried as a child. That's the case of a Lac du Flambeau teen accused of stabbing a man. Today, we found out he will be tried as an adult.

Seventeen-year-old Christian Soulier is accused of stabbing his mother's boyfriend four times.

Today he had his second preliminary hearing. He got two because he's charged with a crime serious enough to be tried as an adult.

Soulier's attornies had a psychiatrist testify he has panic and anxiety disorders, depression and possibly PTSD. Dr. Kent Berney said the adult system would offer Soulier very limited treatment.

Prosecutor Jodie Bednar Clemmons argued he'd get comparable treatment in juvenile or adult systems.

Judge Leon Stenz ultimately agreed and said the stabbing was too vicious to allow Soulier back in juvenile court. Soulier will be back in court to enter a plea, but a date hasn't been set yet.

MILWAUKEE - Several Wisconsin insurance companies are holding special sign-ups so same-sex couples can add spouses to their health plans.

The special enrollment period is needed because gays and lesbians who got married this summer were unable to add spouses to their coverage amid the uncertainty surrounding the legal status of their marriages.

People generally can make changes to a health plan during the year only after a ``life-changing'' event, such as a marriage, divorce, or birth or adoption of a child.
