A deputy medical examiner for Dane County has called the death of jogger Nicholas Day an “extremely brutal homicide.”
That evaluation came during a preliminary hearing Tuesday for 21-year-old Riley Berg. The M-E says Day was shot, then 11 several wounds from a sharp object, including having his throat cut. Berg’s father has told investigators his son is being treated for schizophrenia. Doctor Eli Goodman says Day could have survived the gunshot wound, but the attack that followed cost him his life.
