7 / 30 Craig Hron Found Guily of Intentional Homocide

52 year old Craig Hron from West Bend has been found guilty by a jury of attempted first degree intentional homicide and three other charges in an attempted stabbing attack on his ex- girlfriend in August 2013. According to the criminal complaint, , Hron waited for  Tammy Jollie, on August fourth to exit the West Bend Walmart at 7 a.m., where she had finished a work shift. When Jollie entered her vehicle, Hron attacked her with a knife and attempted to pull her out of the vehicle. Jollie suffered multiple stab wounds and cuts to her chest, right shoulder and arms in the assault, the complaint says. Hron also pointed a pistol at her and told her to get out of the vehicle or he would kill her teenage son. Two men and a co-worker came to Jollie's assistance and helped subdue and hold Hron until police arrived. A jury trial lasted four days and the jury returned the verdict after just a few hours of deliberations.  Hron is now being held in the Washington County Jail. Sentencing is scheduled for September fifth before Washington County Circuit Judge James Pouros. He faces up to 130 years in prison for the four felony convictions. The attempted first-degree murder conviction alone carries a maximum prison penalty of 60 years.
