CRANDON, Wis (WSAU) All four suspects in a Forest County beating case entered not-guilty pleas yesterday. They're accused of leaving their 40-year-old victim in the woods to died.
A judge has already ruled there's enough evidence to move the case to trial. Raymond Jones and Justin Bey are being held on $100,000 cash bonds. April Jones has been unable to post a $25,000 cash bond. Sam McClellan was able to post a $25,000 cash bond, and is now free awaiting today's hearing.
A group of snowmobilers near Bug Lake found the victim nearly beaten to death last March. He suffered a fractured skull, fractured ribs and a broken jaw. The victim has been a house-guest with some of his attackers in Wabeno. He was attacked after he spanked a child who lived there.
