WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - The 20-year-old Marathon County Jail inmate who attacked two guards will have to face a trial.
Fredrick Morris made a court appearance Wednesday under heavy security, waiving his right to a preliminary hearing.
More than a dozen law enforcement officers were reportedly in the courtroom at the time, making sure Morris’ appearance was a peaceful one.
He’s accused of attacking two corrections officers at the jail last month. 36-year-old Julie Christensen was knocked unconscious in the attack. She suffered serious injuries and remains in the intensive care unit of Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
