Two more charged in Howard fight as teens ordered to trial

GREEN BAY – Two more men are charged in a Howard birthday party brawl as three others are ordered to stand trial.

Arthur Broadnax Jr., 19, and Justin Guarnera, 22, face felony charges in connection with the incident on Feb. 7.

Their criminal complaints state Broadnax kicked Guarnera in the head and that both men fought with other people at the party. The documents also say witnesses saw Guarnera pull a knife and heard him say he slashed someone’s cheek and stabbed someone in the stomach.

Broadnax and Guarnera appeared in court Friday afternoon. Their bond was set at $25,000 cash. Both are scheduled to return to court early next month.

Friday morning, three of the four 17-year-olds initially charged with stabbing one teen and beating another appeared in Brown County court.

During that appearance, Sergio Rivera, Tyler Brickham-VanVorce and Royce Bressette waived their preliminary hearings, meaning they are headed to trial.

The fourth 17-year-old, Cory Mayer, appeared in court briefly Friday. He will be back in court early next month.

Another man charged in this case, 30-year-old Nicholas Tank, returns to court next week for his preliminary hearing.
