Charges prepared against St. Junious in fatal stabbing



The man arrested after a stabbing death last week in La Crosse faces charges of reckless homicide and strangulation.

The district attorney is preparing a complaint against Anquin St. Junious of La Crosse in the January 2nd death of Virgil Stewart. 

St. Junious has been held without bond in the county jail since shortly after the early-morning stabbing on 7th Street South, only charged with probation violations until now.

City police say Stewart approached St. Junious and a companion, Annette Thompson, as the two were getting into a cab. 

The two men reportedly fought inside the taxi, and Stewart was stabbed in the chest.  

Stewart died shortly after being taken to Gundersen.   

St. Junious also is accused of battery, threats to injure, and disorderly conduct.
