11/29 Bartelt Enters Dual Plea to Multiple Charges

Those three charges include one count of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, one count of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, and one count of false imprisonment. Prosecutors claim Bartelt came at a woman with a knife at the Richfield Nature Park just after ten am that morning. Following a struggle, the woman was able to disarm Bartelt.
