Woman found beaten, stabbed on western Wis. road

MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) -- Two people are under arrest after a 25-year-old woman was found beaten and stabbed on a road in western Wisconsin.

Dunn County Sheriff Dennis Smith says a caller early Wednesday said he had found the woman on a county road in Grant Township. Officers arrived and found the woman, who apparently had been beaten and stabbed.

Two suspects from Ladysmith -- a 17-year-old boy and a 21-year-old woman -- were arrested. Authorities also located a vehicle that had been reported stolen in Rusk County and apparently was related to the woman's beating.

The victim is in serious condition. Authorities continue their investigation, and formal charges are expected early next week.
