No-contest plea in Madison block party stabbing

Colin Rosendow is accused of stabbing a man 5 times

A Green Bay man is now convicted of stabbing another man five times during a Madison block party.

Colin Rosenow, 23, pleaded no contest Thursday to a reduced charge of first-degree reckless endangerment.

Rosenow was accused of stabbing Mathew Warnert, 21, during a fight at last year’s Mifflin Street Block Party.

A charge of attempted first-degree intentional homicide was dismissed under a plea agreement.

The Wisconsin State Journal reported Rosenow faces up to 17 1/2 years of combined prison and extended supervision when he is sentenced in about two months.

According to the complaint, Rosenow was part of a group walking by Warnert and his friends when the two started fighting.

Rosenow’s trial was to have started next week.
