WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) A Wausau man is being held on $250,000 bond in a jail attack that injured two corrections officers, including one who's hospitalized in intensive care.
Twenty-year-old Fredrick Morris is charged with aggravated battery in the March 27th attack at the Marathon County Jail that critically injured Julie Christensen, who remains at Aspirus Wausau Hospital. A second corrections officer was injured, treated at the hospital and released. A medical report attached to the criminal complaint says Christensen only recently woke from a coma.
Meanwhile, the administrator of the jail has resigned after 25 years on the job. County Administrator Brad Karger says jail employees felt their concerns about safety had not been addressed.
