WAUSAU — A 52-year-old man convicted of stabbing another man at the former Marjon Motel in Wausau will spend two years in prison, after he was sentenced Thursday in Marathon County Circuit Court.

Derrick Davis was convicted of first-degree recklessly endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon in connection with the stabbing, which happened in early July. Charges of intimidating a victim were dismissed but considered at sentencing.

Police responded the evening of July 1 to the former motel, which is now called Rocket Apartments, at 512 S. Third Ave., for a report that a man had been stabbed. Police say a 25-year-old man suffered a single stab wound and was immediately transferred to a local hospital for emergent care.

A tipster led police to Davis, who was taken into custody in connection with the incident.

At sentencing, Circuit Judge Michael Moran also ordered Davis to spend four years on extended supervision following his release from prison.

His extended supervision will be served in Indiana, according to court records. Davis was also granted 180 days credit for time spent behind bars awaiting trial.

The victim in the stabbing has recovered from his injuries.
