VERDICT: On Oct. 30, 2016, the University of Wisconsin-Stout tragedy struck campus with the loss of 24-year-old student Hussain Saeed Alnahdi. According to the Menomonie Police Department, Alnahdi was fatally assaulted outside of Topper’s Pizza on the 400 block of Main Street in Menomonie.

It was announced in early January that the Dunn County District Attorney’s office had charged now 28-year-old Minnesota man Cullen M. Osburn with felony murder and battery in the case.

On April 17, 2018, a Wisconsin Jury reached a verdict. They found Osburn guilty of aggravated battery, however, acquitted him of the felony murder charge.

Dunn County District Attorney Andrea Nodolf was quoted saying in Fox 9 News that since Osburn is a repeat offender, he could be facing up to eight years in prison for aggravated assault.

Osburn will be sentenced on July 13.
