His 10-year sentence for second-degree assault was doubled from the 5-year sentence normally given under the state’s guidelines because Wenell-Jack is considered a “dangerous offender.”

Wennell-Jack was drinking with his brother during the early hours of March 25 in a basement apartment in LaPrairie, according to the criminal complaint.

The brother told police Wennell-Jack got on top of him on the ground of the living room. At first, he thought he was being punched, but soon realized he had been stabbed.

The brother said he pleaded with Wennell-Jack to stop but was too weak to fight back.

The witness said the brother yelled out, asking him to call 911, but Wennell-Jack turned on the brother with the knife, demanding he stay put.

The witness ran then ran to an upstairs apartment to call 911.

Wennell-Jack told his brother he was afraid of returning to prison for the rest of his life and did not let him leave until he agreed “not to tell the cops or their parents,” according to the criminal complaint.

When police arrived, there was a pool of blood on the apartment floor, and a trail of blood from the apartment door all the way to the outside of the building.

The brother was taken to the Grand Itasca emergency room, where a physician described his injuries as “substantial bodily harm.” He was later taken to Duluth St. Mary’s Hospital for exploratory surgery.

Since 2001, Wennell-Jack has been convicted of felony robbery and assault, and of nine misdemeanors.
