EAGLE RIVER, WI (WTAQ) - A northern Wisconsin man now claims he was insane when he allegedly stabbed his pregnant girlfriend, and left her in a car to die.
28-year-old Andrew Rosner of Eagle River pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease during his arraignment Monday in Vilas County. Mental health professionals will evaluate Rosner before his case moves forward.
Authorities said the stabbing victim, 21-year-old Morgan Maney, managed to drive herself to a hospital soon after the incident occurred in February.
In previous testimony, doctors said Maney probably saved her own life, as well as the couple's unborn child.
A pre-trial conference in Rosner's case is set for April 29th. He's charged with attempted homicide, and the attempted homicide of an unborn child.
