(Duluth, MN)  —  Indictments for a long list of people accused of heroin trafficking in the Duluth-Superior area are expected to have a major impact.  Twelve people face federal charges and 17 face Minnesota state charges after the round-up.  Two Superior residents were on the list of suspects released last week.  Thirty-eight-year-old Bernard Brandon Mims and 35-year-old Crystal Brooke Starstead were arrested.  Investigators say 33-year-old Carlos Narshun Coleman of Apple Valley, Minnesota, was the main distributor.  He’s accused of transporting the drugs from Chicago to Minnesota, where the others sold the product or facilitated its sale.


>>Minnesota Man Bound Over For Trial On Child Sex Charges

(Eau Claire, WI)  —  When a Minnesota man showed up at Hobbs Ice Arena in Eau Claire, instead of a man offering his underage daughters for sex, he was met by police officers.  Spencer Kuehl has been bound over for trial on two felony charges.  He had been caught in a child sex sting.  An undercover officer was posing as that father offering his 11- and eight-year-old daughters for sex.  Kuehl offered 200-dollars for the chance to have sex with the older child.  If he is convicted of both felonies, he could be sentenced to 85 years in prison.  Kuehl has a hearing scheduled in Eau Claire County later this month.



>>La Crosse Man Reaches Plea Agreement In April Shooting

(La Crosse, WI)  —  The charges against a 19-year-old La Crosse man have been reduced from attempted homicide to felony bail jumping.  Prosecutors say Steven Brock played a relatively minor role in a shooting case last spring.  The six charges which were dismissed will be considered by the court when Brock is sentenced May 31st.  Prosecutors are recommending he receive a probation term.  Surveillance video shows Ramon Washington shooting at Monica Thompson April 10th, but no one was hit.  Washington and two other men were also charged in the case.  Washington faces a 20-year prison sentence when he is sentenced later this month.


>>Winnebago County Jury Rejects Mental Illness Claim

(Oshkosh, WI)  —  A Winnebago County jury has determined Brian Flatoff wasn’t mentally ill three years ago when he took hostages at a motorcycle shop and fired shots at police during a standoff.  The same jury had convicted Flatoff of all 14 charges last week.  He is scheduled for sentencing May 16th.  Flatoff represented himself during the trial, but asked for an attorney the day before the verdict was returned.  That attorney made a motion for a mistrial — which was denied.  Flatoff was found guilty of felony murder, conspiracy to commit murder and two counts of attempted homicide for shooting at Neenah police.


>>Authorities Look For Shooter Who Killed Fitchburg Man

(Fitchburg, WI)  —  Law enforcement agencies in the Madison area are looking for the shooter who killed a 20-year-old Fitchburg man Monday night.  Investigators say it looks like there was a fight at a home involving several men and during that fight at least one shot was fired.  The victim was taken to a hospital where he died.  His name hasn’t been released.  Fitchburg Police say the other men who were there ran away and haven’t been found.  The death is classified as a homicide because police don’t think they’re dealing with a random act of violence.


>>Governor Says Democrats Should Be Ashamed Of Excluding Female Candidates
