WHITEHALL, Wis. (WEAU) -- A teen accused of stabbing two people in Trempealeau County has been sentenced.

Arik Schultz, 18, was sentenced to two years of prison and 12 years of probation in court on Tuesday for two counts of use of a dangerous weapon. Other charges were dismissed but read in.

Schultz is accused of stabbing two people at a home near Centerville back in February. According to a criminal complaint, when officers made contact with Schultz, they noticed he had blood all over him. He reportedly told officers that it was because of a pimple and a burn he got at work. The complaint said Schultz admitted to officers that he was drinking, but says he was attacked by one of the victims and was stabbing him in defense.
