CRANDON — One
of four people charged with beating a Wisconsin man and leaving
him in the woods to die has been sentenced to nine months in jail.
WAOW-TV reports (http://bit.ly/XpPmFD
) 38-year-old April Jones pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery in
exchange for the dismissal of three felony charges. Online court
records show she was also charged with first-degree intentional
homicide, kidnapping and false imprisonment.
Jones and three others beat and tortured a 40-year-old man whom
they suspected of inappropriately touching a child inside of a
Wabeno home in March.
the man was then left in the woods near Crandon, where the
suspects hoped he would be attacked by wolves. They say he was
found nearly two days later, near death with a broken jaw, two
broken ribs and a frozen foot.
The three others
are set to return to court next month.
