Wierstad will stand trial for child abuse
St. Croix County Judge Eric Lundell ruled that Jonathon D. Wierstad will stand trial for inflicting life-threatening injuries his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son. The boy has been in a coma since the incident on April 8.
The judge made the decision after hearing testimony from Hudson Police Det. Sgt. Geoff Willems, the only witness called at the preliminary hearing on Monday.
