MENOMONIE – The Minneapolis man who faces charges in Dunn County for the beating death of a UW-Stout student was ordered to stand trial Thursday by Judge Rod Smeltzer
Cullen M. Osburn, 27, faces charges of felony murder and aggravated battery in the death of Hussain Saeed Alnahdi, 24. Alnahdi died Oct. 31 after an altercation in downtown Menomonie on Oct. 30. He died from traumatic brain injury.
Alnahdi had a blood alcohol level of 0.28, according the testimony from Menomonie Police Department Investigator Kelly Pollock. The blood draw was when Alnahdi was at the hospital.
Osburn is in custody on a $75,000 bond. His defense lawyer Christopher Zipko has said the case is one of self-defense.
Arraignment is scheduled next Thursday. Osburn has already pleaded not guilty to the charges.
