14-year-old Wisconsin girl charged with attempted homicide
A New Richmond teenager rode her bicycle 11 miles to the home of her brother’s girlfriend, slipped inside, awakened the girl and went on an hours-long assault that included cutting the victim’s throat before leaving her for dead, according to charges filed Thursday in St. Croix County Circuit Court.
The suspect, identified in a criminal complaint at 14-year-old Kali J. Bookey, was charged as an adult with one count of attempted first-degree homicide.
St. Croix County Circuit Court Judge Eric Lundell ordered Bookey to be held in an Eau Claire juvenile facility without bond. Releasing her from custody “would not adequately protect members of the public from serious bodily harm,” he said.
