Wisconsin woman gets 9 months in jail for beating

 

September 16, 2014

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.

Investigators say 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.

Prosecutors say 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.
