A judge in western Wisconsin’s Saint Croix County ruled today (Fri) there’s probable cause to proceed with prosecution of a Twin Cities man accused of fatally stabbing a teenager from Stillwater during a confrontation involving tubers on the Apple River. 52-year-old Nicolae Miu from Prior Lake faces one count of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted murder. Testifying at today’s hearing was Saint Croix County Sheriff Brandie Hart, who described a chaotic scene in a three-minute video from late July. Miu told investigators he was acting in self-defense. He’s hired the attorney who successfully defended teenager Kyle Rittenhouse after he shot and killed two men during rioting two years ago in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
