River Falls (WQOW) - There's new information is released in a death investigation.
A young man from River Falls has been released from jail.
Codi Walztoni was arrested after a stabbing in River Falls on Friday. One man died and another was taken to the hospital.
Police say there was an argument at an apartment building, but they aren't saying much more about the case.
Monday, the Pierce County District Attorney said Walztoni would be released from jail.
The DA said it's premature to formally charge him until the investigation is done. The district attorney also said they're unsure whether Wisconsin's self defense law would apply.
River Falls Police say there is a significant amount of information that needs to be collected yet. For example: the state crime lab report and the medical examiner's report.
Over the weekend, the police chief said he believed there was no danger to the public and Monday, after News 18 learned Walztoni would be released from jail, the police chief said he still stands by that statement.
