Judge Jenifer Dorow says she was tougher than normal on a convicted domestic abuser now accused of stabbing his in-laws in Illinois.
The sheriff in Will County, Illinois says 36-year-old Michael Liu broke into his in-laws last Thursday, shot at them, then stabbed them several times. Liu was supposed to report to jail in Waukesha last Thursday. Judge Dorow had sentenced him to 60 days in jail just a few days earlier. But he skipped town. Dorow is running for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Her campaign yesterday said the two days she gave Liu to report to jail is tougher than the usual sentence in cases like this.
