Frederiksen Has Preliminary Hearing Today

7/8/11 – A Horicon teen accused of stabbing of a woman in her home will be in court for a preliminary hearing Friday. That’s after a Dodge County judge this week found Cory Frederiksen competent to stand trial in connection with the May 23 assault. The 17-year-old is charged with First Degree Attempted Murder for allegedly stabbing his 53-year-old neighbor as many as 18-times. Authorities say Candia Rehse went to get something to eat just before 5am and, when she returned home, she walked in on Frederickson. Rehse was left with a fractured skull and deep skin lacerations, among other injuries. She fought back and bloodied Frederickson before he fled the scene. Frederickson and his father were on their way to the hospital when police stopped them and took the teen into custody. He is being held on a quarter-million dollar bond. Both Frederiksen’s attorney and the District Attorney waived an Evidentiary Hearing on Wednesday and the court based its decision that Frederiksen was competent based on a written report from a Watertown psychiatrist. A fund has been set up for Rehse – a longtime community volunteer – at all Horicon Bank locations.
