KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - A Kenosha man is due back in court a week from Wednesday, after being charged with killing a woman while the two were smoking crack cocaine together.
Prosecutors said 37-year-old Johnny Young became annoyed when 52-year-old Christine Saucier kept scrunching a potato chip bag that contained the crack. And Young was quoted as telling investigators he “just freaked out” when he responded to the noise by stabbing her.
Young is charged with first-degree intentional homicide. He was still in jail at last word, after his bond was set at a half-million dollars.
Prosecutors said Young took three-eighths-of-an-ounce of crack cocaine to the victim’s house on Monday – he did not think he could smoke so much of the drug at one sitting.
At his next court appearance, a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial for Young.
