Another Man Sentenced in Mole Lake Stabbing

11 Dec News

A third person has been sentenced in a Mole Lake stabbing from earlier this year.

Preston Krusensterna was sentenced to 7 years in prison for his role in the incident. The 18 year old had pleaded guilty to attempted second degree intentional homicide and false imprisonment. In exchange for the guilty plea, 5 other charges were dismissed but read in.

Krusensterna, along with 5 others, were accused of holding a man against his will in Mole Lake. Authorities said it was likely gang related and the man they held was set to testify in another case. When the man escaped he suffered stab wounds and injuries to his face.

In addition to the prison time, Krusensterna will also get 8 years extended supervision, fines, community service, may not associate with gangs or possess alcohol.

Two others, Melvin Zarda and Craig McGeshick have also been sentenced in the past few weeks. The three others charged in the incident will go to trial early next year.
