Spirit Lake, IA (KICD)–A Spirit Lake man faces charges following a Thursday altercation.

Court documents obtained by KICD News allege that 38-year-old Jeremy Wohlert got into a physical altercation with a woman and held her against her will. A criminal complaint alleges that Wohlert had two kitchen knives in each of his hands and told the woman to come over at which time Wohlert slit his throat and struck a minor in the face during an argument.

Sheldon, IA (KICD)–Three from Worthington were injured, including one critically, in a Monday morning accident in O’Brien County.

The driver of the van tried to slow down as well and lost control. A passenger, 59-year-old Pedro Magana was thrown from the van as it entered the median and rolled.

Mercy Hospital staff believe that Magana’s injuries would probably result in a fatality, but were unsure.
