Onalaska man who stabbed roommate sentenced in court

An Onalaska man who stabbed his roommate in July of this year, learned his sentence on Tuesday

La Crosse County Judge Todd Bjerke sentenced 24-year-old Aaron Petras to four years of probation.

According to court records, Petras came home from a night of drinking and rekindled an earlier argument with his roommate Zachary Crogan. The two hit each other, began wrestling, after which Petras grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed Crogan in the neck. Crogan has since recovered from his injuries.

Aaron Petras will be electronically monitored after he’s released from jail on Sunday.
