Man Accused in Death of Stout Student Pleads Not Guilty
MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) – The Minnesota man accused of killing a University of Wisconsin Stout
student from Saudi Arabia, has pleaded not guilty to charges.
Cullen Osburn is charged with felony murder and aggravated battery in the death of Hussain Saeed Alnahdi. The 24-year-old student died from a brain injury last October following an altercation in downtown Menomonie.
The 27-year-old Minneapolis man appeared in Dunn County Circuit Court Monday. Judge Rod Smeltzer rejected a defense request to reduce Osburn’s $75,000 bond.
Alnahdi came to UW-Stout from Saudi Arabia to study English as a second language. The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram says a preliminary hearing is scheduled April 20.
