Plea Deal Reached In Attack On Beaver Dam Woman

(Beaver Dam) A Vesper woman will spend six months on electronic monitoring for attacking a Beaver Dam woman. Kaylee Derrie was able to avoid a felony record after being placed on deferred prosecution for Burglary; a prison sentence is hanging over her head if she violates probation while on deferred prosecution for the next two years. She was convicted of misdemeanor Battery, Intimidation of a Victim and Disorderly Conduct. Beaver Dam police were dispatched to a stabbing on Park Avenue in February of last year. The 17-year-old victim told investigators that her ex-boyfriend and Derrie attacked her, punching and choking her and stealing her phone so she could not call for help. The victim defended herself by stabbing Derrie in the back three times with a folding knife. Derrie fled with the ex-boyfriend, who is also a minor and was in possession of a nine-millimeter handgun. Both were later arrested by Washington County deputies. The 19-year-old Derrie reportedly met the ex-boyfriend during a stint at a mental health facility and continued the relationship on social media. The two allegedly hatched a plan that involved confronting the victim at her home, stealing pills from the residence and driving to Chicago to commit suicide. The ex-boyfriend denied involvement telling authorities that Derrie was stabbed by a homeless man. He said that he wanted no harm to come to his ex-girlfriend, he just wanted to say good-bye one last time.
