Suspect in Rusk County Homicide Case Now Competent to Stand Trial


 A man previously found incompetent to stand trial is now competent to face charges in two counties.

At a hearing on March 29, Preston Kraft was found capable of standing trial for murder and other charges.

In January, Kraft faced charges for the death of Robert Petit in Rusk County and multiple charges in Chippewa County, including second-degree recklessly endangering safety.

He was found incompetent at the time.

A preliminary hearing is set for May 14 in Rusk County.
