Winona Stabbing Victim Died After Delay in Seeking Medical Care
Winona, MN (KROC-AM News) - Bail was set at $300,000 for Winona man after he was formally charged this week with second-degree murder and second-degree assault.
A criminal complaint filed in Winona County Court this week alleges 38-year-old Sean Emmons caused the death of another man in September. Court records indicate investigators were told by witnesses that Emmons had caught his girlfriend in bed with the victim and stabbed him in the leg on September 11th. The victim then waited until Monday to seek medical attention and died at a La Crosse hospital on September 15th.
An autopsy report stated that "based on the case history and autopsy findings, it is our opinion that (victim's name redacted) died as a result of complications of a stab wound of the lower left extremity." The report classified the manner of death as homicide.
The criminal complaint also notes Emmons already faces multiple felony drug charges and a felony assault charge. His next court appearance has been scheduled for November 29th.
