CRANDON, WI (WTAQ) - Charges have now been filed against four adults for beating a man over several days in Forest County.

Court documents released Wednesday detail that Justin Bey, Raymond Jones, April Jones and Samantha McClellan left the man for dead in the woods for wolves to eat.

The 40-year-old man came from Prairie du Chien a couple weeks before to live with one of the suspects in Wabeno after meeting on a dating website.

Last week, an 11-year-old girl who lives at the home said the man touched her inappropriately. That set off the alleged attack.

“You’ll see in the complaint that it was with an open hand. Nothing of a grab and that she took off running. No one ever inquired with him as to what had happened before. They just immediately started beating on him,” Forest County District Attorney Charles Simono told FOX 11.

Simono says there is no plan to charge the victim.

The victim was found in some woods near Crandon by a group of ATV riders. He suffered multiple fractures and severe frostbite.

Two juveniles were also charged. Simono wouldn’t give any details of those charges.
