Plover man pleads insanity in murder of stepfather

STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - A central Wisconsin man claims he was insane when he allegedly killed his stepfather with a baseball bat.

Andrew Pray of Plover pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease Monday to a Portage County charge of first-degree intentional homicide.

Pray, who turned 33 last Friday, will now get a mental competency exam. A judge will review it at a conference on October 6th.

Pray is accused of striking 77-year-old Christopher Bonnstetter 3 or 4 times with the bat, as the victim was resting on his living room floor May 26th.

Authorities said Pray's mother tried calling for help, and she was forced to go to a neighbor to get assistance. Pray was arrested a short time later.
