Eau Claire (WQOW) - A man who has already spent more than 200 days in prison is ordered to stay another 20 after he pleaded no contest to stabbing his brother.
It happened last October. The victim told police Isaac Curler had been hearing voices and acting strangely. His mother said Curler had longstanding mental health issues.
As part of the deal, Curler must get a mental health evaluation and undergo any recommended treatment. He'll also spend two years on probation

Eau Claire (WQOW) - The case against an Eau Claire man accused of stabbing his brother in October is suspended after he was found 'not competent' to proceed.
Police say Isaac Curler stabbed his brother in the chest with a knife during an altercation at a home on Langdell Road. The victim told investigators Curler had been hearing voices and acting strangely, and his mother said Curler has longstanding mental health issues.
Friday the judge found it likely that Curler will regain competency with treatment, and ordered him committed.
