MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) — Dunn County’s district attorney says a woman accused of killing a man stabbed him 16 times and then carved the word “boy” on her arm.
Twenty-year-old Ezra McCandless, of Stanley, is being held on $250,000 bond in the death of 24-year-old Alexander Woodworth. McCandless has not been formally charged with his death, but made an appearance via video in Dunn County Circuit Court Wednesday.
DA Andrea Nodolf said in court that McCandless had admitted to the stabbing, but claims Woodworth attacked her.
The victim’s body was found in a car in a driveway in rural Springbrook March 23.
