Minnesotan charged in fatal stabbing 
of Wisconsin fisherman

BALSAM LAKE - A Minnesota man has been charged with first-degree reckless homicide in the fatal stabbing of a Wisconsin fisherman at Interstate State Park.

Bail was set Friday at $125,000 for 19-year-old Levi C. Acre-Kendall, of Cambridge. Thirty-four-year-old Peter Kelly, of St. Croix Falls, was stabbed Tuesday night after he and a friend argued with three younger men across the St. Croix River. The confrontation happened on the Wisconsin side. Acre-Kendall surrendered Thursday.

A news outlet reports the criminal complaint sheds no insights on the argument. Polk County Chief Deputy Steve Moe said authorities have no answers despite cooperation from both men's friends.

Acre-Kendall's mother, Lavonne Acre, said it wouldn't have happened if Kelly and his friend hadn't crossed the river to confront her son and his friends.
