Marinette County Circuit Court Judge David Miron set a sentence hearing for Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 1:30 p.m. and ordered a pre-sentence investigation.
The Jury found Mileski guilty of felony first degree recklessly endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon, felony aggravated battery by use of a dangerous weapon and misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct, battery and possession of THC. He was found not guilty of a second felony count of first degree recklessly endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon and a second felony count of aggravated battery with intent to do great bodily harm by use of a dangerous weapon and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to court records on Jan. 1, Marinette police were dispatched to the commons area of the Dunlap Apartments complex for a disturbance. Upon arrival they found Vanable, who also resided in the complex, with multiple stab wounds and had attempted to intervene in a disagreement between Mileski and his girlfriend, Sarah Merchant. Vanable was transported by Eagle 3 Helicopter to St. Vincent Hospital and treated for life threatening injuries. He was later released.
The case was prosecuted by District Attorney Allen Brey.
