A 15-year-old boy accused of stabbing a 60-year-old woman in an unprovoked attack is now being represented by defense attorney Gary Kryshak.
Carver appeared via video on Aug. 1. Other than identifying himself, he did not speak during the hearing.
Carver stands accused of stabbing the female relative in the back and neck at her home on the 3000 block of Haga Dr. on July 13. When police arrived, the woman was “covered in blood” but conscious, sitting at her kitchen table and “being assisted by the caller’s husband”, according to police.
The woman “immediately stated to [the police] that her grandson had attacked her with a knife”, according to the complaint, telling police she had been watching television when he stabbed her five times in the neck and back. Police said the knife was about three inches long; staples were required to close the woman’s wounds.
The woman was able to get to her neighbor’s home for help after Carver took the woman’s cell phone, which police later found smashed in the driveway, according to the complaint.
Carver had taken the woman’s car and fled to his native Wausau by the time police arrived. He was taken into custody by Wausau policy on July 14.
The victim and her husband told police Carver had been staying with them because he had “behavior problems” at his home, to include getting into fights. When investigators spoke with the fiance of Carver’s mother, he described Carver as “being mad at the world” and had “entitlement issues” who would destroy belongings in his room when he got angry.
Carver had been staying with the couple in Plover since May, according to the complaint. He returns to court for his preliminary hearing on Aug. 25.
