A Dunn County jury wouldn’t buy a Stanley woman’s claim of self-defense for stabbing her boyfriend to death.
The jury found 22-year-old Ezra McCandless guilty of first-degree intentional homicide Friday. Prosecutors told the court she stabbed 24-year-old Alex Woodworth 16 times in March 2018. McCandless had taken the stand, telling the court she feared Woodworth was going to rape and kill her. She faces a life prison term when she is sentenced.
