A cash bond of $50,000 is set for a 17-year-old, who’s accused of trying to kill a 15-year-old girl in her Onalaska home last week.
Austin Bailey is accused of attempted first-degree murder for trying to strangle the girl while she was sleeping last Friday. When the victim woke up, Bailey took out a knife and began stabbing her.
She fought back and Bailey took off. Police called his phone, and he surrendered near some apartments, while still carrying a knife.
Bailey is also charged with use of a dangerous weapon and burglary while armed.
