Suspect Held on One Million Dollars Bond

Madison Police say the suspect in last weekend’s brutal attack on a UW student says he ‘went into a rage.’ 

Prosecutors filed formal charges against 26-year-old Brandon Thompson yesterday.  He’s charged with beating, raping, and nearly killing a young woman early last Sunday morning.  Investigators say Thompson admitted beating the woman, but denied raping her.  Asked why, police say Thompson told them he ‘went into a rage.’  Witnesses say Thompson was covered in the woman’s blood when they found him standing over her body.  Thompson is being held in the Dane County Jail on a million dollars bond.
