Onalaska 17-year-old to be tried for knife attack on 15-year-old girl in her bedroom
A 17-year-old from Onalaska pleaded not guilty to a charge of attempting to kill a 15-year-old girl.
Austin Bailey will be scheduled for trial in La Crosse County, following his arraignment Tuesday.
Bailey is accused of stabbing the girl repeatedly and choking her while she was sleeping at her home in early September.
The victim woke up and fought Bailey, who ran from the mobile home and was caught by police near Onalaska Middle School.
Bailey remains jailed in La Crosse, with a cash bond set at $50,000.
