Bessemer — A Wisconsin man has been arraigned on a felony charge related to a stabbing in Ironwood earlier this month.

Benjamin Allen Bozile, 30, of Gillett, Wisconsin, is charged with one count of assault with intent to commit murder. The charge carries a potential maximum sentence of life in prison.

The charge steps from an incident at an Ironwood motel in the 400 block of West Cloverland Drive on Sept. 1, according to a news release from the Ironwood Public Safety Department.

Officers responding to a 911 call found a man laying in the parking lot bleeding. The 36-year-old had allegedly been stabbed several times, according to the release, and had his throat slit.

The man was taken to Aspirus Ironwood by Beacon Ambulance before being transported to Aspirus Wausau, where he remains in “serious but stable condition.”

Bozile was arrested by the Wisconsin State Patrol in Iron County, according to the release, and was taken to the Iron County Jail.

He was arraigned in Gogebic County District Court on Thursday, according to online court records, following his extradition back to Michigan.

He is lodged at the Gogebic County Jail on a $500,000 cash bond,

The Hurley Police Department, Iron County Sheriff’s Departments, Wisconsin State Patrol and Iron County Human Services also assisted with the case, according to the IPSD release.

The case remains under investigation.
