A Wausau man accused of sending threatening text messages to a student, causing the school to go into lockdown will now go to trial.
Marcos Garza appeared in court yesterday, where he entered a not guilty plea. According to court records, he is being charged with a felony for threats to injure, plus two misdemeanors for threatening injury or harm with a computer message and carrying a concealed weapon.
Garza allegedly sent multiple text messages to a 17 year old Wausau West student with whom he had a previous relationship. The October incident caused West High School to enter a lockdown for a short time. Garza was later arrested in downtown Wausau.
He remains in the Marathon County Jail unable to post a $25,000 bond.
