On April 14, 2015, two groups of men got into a physical confrontation at the St. Croix River at Interstate Park in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin. By the time first responders arrived, one man was dead. In today's episode, I speak with Eric Nelson, from the Halberg Criminal Defense Firm, about the trial that followed, in which he represented the defendant. Would the jury convict his client, or would they believe the claims of self-defense?
