EAGLE RIVER (WAOW) - A judge ordered a trial Tuesday for a 28-year-old Eagle River man accused stabbing his pregnant girlfriend in the chest during an argument as she drove them home from visiting friends.
Andrew Rosner was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide in the Feb. 1 incident.
A judge ruled prosecutors presented enough evidence during a preliminary hearing to justify the charges, according to online Vilas County court records. Rosner is to return to court March 17 to enter pleas to the charges.
One of the felonies involves the victim's unborn child and was filed because Rosner knew the woman was pregnant prior to the attack, the criminal complaint said.
The 20-year-old woman told investigators that she was stabbed with a pocketknife that Rosner pulled out before he threatened her and told her he was going to watch her die, the complaint said.
The woman drove herself to an Eagle River hospital after Rosner left the car when it slowed down, the complaint said.
Rosner's attorney, Courtney Jolin of Rhinelander, did not immediately return a telephone message Tuesday.
