A 17-year-old has been charged with attempted murder in connection with a stabbing in Stoughton over a canceled prom date, a court document filed this week alleged.
Tyler J. Bexson, of Madison, was charged Wednesday with attempted first-degree intentional homicide and first-degree reckless injury, both felonies, in a violent attack against a Stoughton father on April 30.
Police responded to a report of a disturbance at a home on the 600 block of North Page Street in Stoughton at 1:06 a.m. on April 30.
A criminal complaint filed Wednesday said the resident of the home, Matthew Mclimans heard someone outside and headed to the back yard armed with a bat. Mclimans told police he found Bexson outside the home and asked him why he was at the house so late and Bexson said, "I came to see you die."
