CADOTT, Wis. (AP) -- Chippewa County authorities say a man broke into the home of his ex-girlfriend's mother and stabbed three people, and was later found overdosed on medication.
Sheriff's Capt. Eugene Gutsch says the attack happened Tuesday about 3:30 a.m. at a trailer park near Cadott.
He says the mother was stabbed in the neck and is in critical condition. Two male friends of the ex-girlfriend were also hurt. One was treated and released from a hospital and the other remained hospitalized in unknown condition.
Gutsch says the suspect is a 39-year-old Chippewa County man. He was found semiconscious in his van about a quarter-mile away.
The suspect is in critical condition.
Gutsch says the girlfriend and suspect broke up two days ago. He says the woman was home during the attack but wasn't hurt.
