Gruesome video shown at trial on fatal Apple River stabbing

A graphic video depicting the final moments of teenager Isaac Schuman's life was shown in St. Croix County Circuit Court on Monday, the opening day of Nicolae Miu's trial. The 54-year-old Prior Lake man is charged with stabbing Schuman and four others in a 2022 fight on the Apple River.

Filmed from just a few feet away by a friend of Schuman's, the three-minute, 25-second cellphone video shows how an encounter between Miu and a group of teenage boys quickly and chaotically turned from shouting to pushing and shoving to violent stabbings.

Even as people fall into the water and the river turns red with blood, some bystanders don't seem to understand what's happening as the confrontation turns fatal.
