Demmerly returns to court

Posted:

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW)--The man accused in a shoot out with Rothschild police will return to court Wednesday for a conditional release hearing.

Errol Demmerly, 27, was sentenced to 57 years in a mental hospital last year for allegedly shooting at officers during a traffic stop in June 2007.

A Marathon County judge found Demmerly not guilty because of mental illness in 2010 but ordered him confined under close watch, undergoing mental evaluations every few months.

Newsline 9 will have updates after the hearing.
