(Menomonie, WI) — A young woman from the Chippewa Valley who’s serving a life sentence for stabbing a man to death back in 2018 wants a new trial. Ezra McCandless’ lawyers this week filed a motion for a new trial, ticking-off a laundry list of things they said were problematic with her first case. A jury in Dunn County convicted McCandless of stabbing her boyfriend, 24-year-old Alex Woodworth, to death during a fight four years ago. She’s serving a life sentence, but can ask for parole in 2070. McCandless claims she killed her boyfriend in self defense.
