Eagle River man pleads insanity in stabbing

EAGLE RIVER (WAOW) - A 28-year-old Eagle River man has entered insanity pleas to charges accusing him of stabbing his pregnant girlfriend in the chest during an argument as she drove them home from visiting friends.

Andrew Rosner pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect to two counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide in the Feb. 1 incident, according to online Vilas County court records. After the pleas Monday, a judge ordered that Rosner be evaluated by doctors.

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.

A pretrial conference was set for April 29.
