Courtney headed to trial in roommate stabbing

Posted: Updated:
JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Stabbing suspect Clayton Courtney is headed to trial in Rock County.

The 28-year-old appeared in court Monday for a preliminary hearing. He is charged with attempted homicide and several other counts after police say he stabbed his roommate Michael Clark earlier this month.

The Janesville Gazette reports Courtney's attorney argued that the prosecution did not prove Courtney intended to kill Clark, who was stabbed in the shoulder and foot.

Courtney is expected to enter a plea at his arraignment Thursday.

Courtney is also the lone suspect in the death of his girlfriend, Britney Cross, but he has not been charged in the case. Police found Cross' body behind a former furniture store the morning after Courtney is accused of attacking his roommate.
